Walkin' Talkin' Lupus (WTL) is a new weekly walking group created by the Lupus Star Foundation to bring together lupus survivors in a healthy, adventurous way. The group will participate in various activities, all while building the strong support network that lupus patients need. The main goal of Walkin' Talkin' Lupus is to allow lupus survivors to connect with one another, share lupus information, as well as personal issues, stories and advice; in a fun, healthy way. WTL will attend local events and participate in activities such as visiting museums, dining together, walking, taking boat rides and the occasional round of mini golf. A traditional support group where you sit in a room and have discussions is great, but our group is the next level of therapy. Enjoying and connecting with your support network in a fun and exciting way is good for the patients' physical, mental and emotional well-being. The group is open to people with other chronic illnesses and supporters as well. Our main activity will be walking the downtown Detroit area. This promotes good health and allows lupus patients to connect in a unique way.
Lupus warriors and supporters take a leisurely walk together for exercise and good health, but more importantly to connect, learn from and support one another. Just think of it as a support group, walking club and girl's day out all in one!! Men are welcome too! Bring your families along, a good walk is great for everybody's health. We will stroll the river walk beginning at Milliken State Park (Atwater St and Rivard), we will meet near the carousel. Please let us know if you plan to attend by email, Twitter or Facebook.
Information about the WTL events will always be posted in the LSF events calendar, and can also be found on the site homepage. The first Walk is scheduled for Sunday June 30th at 6pm. More details can be found on the events calendar. Please tweet @lupusstar or email [email protected] any questions or concerns. We encourage all Lupus patients in the Metro Detroit Area to join Walkin' Talkin' Lupus, no matter how serious your illness is!! We need you, as much as you need us!!
WEAR PURPLE OR ORANGE!!
