Persatuan SLE Malaysia (PSLEM) hopes that you, your family and friends can come and walk in support of Lupus patients at Walk-a-Payung 2012, this Sun, 20 May, starting from Tropicana Medical Centre in Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya.
For your information, PSLEM provides social and psychological support and financial assistance to people suffering from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), or Lupus for short, an auto-immune disorder in which the patient's body produces antibodies that attack his/her own tissues.
PSLEM is targeting for 1500 participants to walk with opened umbrellas on 20 May (in conjunction with World Lupus Day 2012) to create public awareness on this lesser-known disorder and to raise funds for joint replacement and cataract operations for needy SLE patients (the side-effects of their steroid medication). The umbrellas are to show that SLE patients have to avoid too much sun, which can trigger a relapse.
Registration starts 7.00am, together with free health checks and Food & Fun Fair. Walk starts 8.30am.
A 3.7-km walk starting from Tropicana Medical Centre (TMC) in Kota Damansara. For those who are not familiar with Kota Damansara, TMC is after Sunway Giza Shopping Mall if you are coming from the LDP. It's next to SEGi University College.
