***ALR Atlanta Walk has been Canceled***

Unfortunately, the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR) has been forced to cancel this year’s Atlanta Walk with Us to Cure Lupus scheduled for this Saturday, September 27th due to last minute, major scheduling conflicts at Grant Park. We were just informed that a movie that was supposed to film in the park on Monday needed to push up the filming to Saturday due to the weather forecast. Therefore, much of our walk route as well as the timing of our event will be affected. To ensure the safety of our participants and because the quality of the Walk will be greatly diminished we feel that it is better to cancel this year’s Walk.

Like you, we look forward to our Walk events and it pains us when we have to cancel a Walk due to unforeseen circumstances. We ask for your understanding and we thank you for your continued support. Please be sure to contact anyone planning on coming with you to the Walk to let them know about the cancelation.

You can mail your donations to the ALR office (address below). Once we receive them, they will be processed and posted to your team and/or personal pages within two weeks. If you have raised $100 or more we will send you an ALR Atlanta Walk t-shirt once all donations have been received.

Like so many people with lupus, Erica Buchanan is highly motivated.  She was diagnosed with lupus while balancing a career in teaching and attending graduate school.  Erica has naturally channeled her love of education into the additional role of lupus advocate, and is a member of the ALR Multi-cultural Outreach Task Force.
