A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to BC Lupus Society's Lupus Walk today! It was a gorgeous day to get outside and raise awareness for Lupus - a disease that affects around 3.5 million North Americans.
I'm so thankful to my friends and family that were able to show support by walking with me, as well as the many people who couldn't be there but support me none-the-less!
We came prepared slathered in sunscreen and this year Brooklyn and Caleb got their own shirts! I made it around the whole walk with ease and even a little kick in my step. Admittedly, even after an afternoon nap, I'm struggling a bit this evening (pain, headache, dizziness, nausea, fatigue) but it was nice to spend some time with loved ones outside.
Here are some highlights from our morning!
