Belleville, Illinois — October 6, 2020 —Allsup, the nation’s premier disability representation company®, is proud to sponsor the Lupus Foundation of America – Heartland Chapter’s Walk to End Lupus Now being celebrated Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020, across Missouri, southern Illinois and eastern Kansas.
Lupus organizers are encouraging teams to walk in their neighborhoods, parks and community gathering spaces in three states to promote awareness of lupus, provide vital support and assistance, and fund research to better understand the disease. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can cause significant tissue damage, organ failure, disability and death.
According to Lupus Foundation of America, the disease affects approximately 1.5 million Americans. The severe effects of this disease can make it impossible for people to continue working. Allsup has helped thousands of individuals with lupus to successfully receive their Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI), which they earned with their FICA payroll taxes while working.
As a sponsor for several years, Allsup supports the work of the foundation to heighten awareness and build an active community of volunteers, people living with lupus, caregivers, healthcare professionals, researchers and donors.
The Walk to End Lupus Now will raise funds to support local programs and services, and culminates with a celebration of lupus experts, lupus warriors, teams and special guests in a virtual event on Oct. 10 at 11 a.m. CT. Learn more about related activities here.
