Hello, my name is Alex Payne and I'm a Senior at E A Laney High School. In order to graduate, I must complete a graduation project and one of the requirements for the project is to have a product associated with my project topic. My topic is on the lack of awareness concerning Autoimmune Diseases compared to Cancer and Childhood Diseases. As several of my family members, including my Mom, suffer from Autoimmune Diseases this cause means a lot to me. For my product, I've chosen to host a 5K walk for Autoimmune Awareness on Sunday, November 18, 2018 at Hugh MacRae Park in Wilmington NC, from 1pm-3pm. If you would like to walk, please click the JOIN OUR TEAM button, but if you're unable to attend the walk please feel free to click the DONATE NOW button.
On the day of the walk, I plan on having waters, light snacks, custom designed Team wristbands and informational brochures about Autoimmune Diseases. When you register, please make your personal goal as $10 (this is covering your registration fee for the walk). Also, there is a required section asking your t-shirt size, but in order to receive this t-shirt you must update your personal goal to show a minimum of $25. If you would like to pledge that amount in order to receive a t-shirt, please feel free to do so, but for the purposes of my graduation project, I'm only asking for the $10 to cover the registration fee. All money goes directly to Autoimmune Awareness and all registrations and/or donations must be handled via this site. I can't wait to walk with all of you as we join together to raise awareness for Autoimmune Diseases!
Thank you for visiting our Autoimmune Walk TEAM page! Here you can see who is on the team and how much we have raised so far. You can even add your donation to the total or join us as a team member.
We are excited to be supporting AARDA through the Autoimmune Walk, because more than 50 million Americans are impacted by autoimmune disease and something must be done. We have linked together to make an impact, raise awareness and raise much-needed funds... Because when we link together, we are stronger. When we link together, a cure is closer.
Please register to walk with our team OR make a pledge to one of our teammates and help us reach our goal!
