Walking to raise awareness of Lupus

Lupus Awareness Month

May is Lupus Awareness Month.

This weekend in Saginaw you'll see many people in purple, all walking to raise awareness.

Paris Nettles is organizing the walk, and Stephanie Tyra is with Central Michigan Harley Owners Group, which is sponsoring the event.

Both Paris and Stephanie joined Rachelle and Mike in the studio to talk about the walk and how you can help.

The event is taking place on Saturday, May 19 on Ojibway Island in Saginaw.

It happens on 121 Ezra Drive at 1 pm.

A t-shirt is $20 and the proceeds go to the Lupus Foundation of America.

You can find out more information about the event on their Facebook page.

You can also donate to the Lupus Fundraiser through GoFundMe.
