Runwitme Says: You could also sponsor a needy SLE patient for the walk at RM50.00. Each participant is entitled to A Walk-a-Payung t-shirt and umbrella, a pair of sunglasses or spectacle frame (while stocks last), breakfast and goodie bag. Participants are also eligible for a Lucky Draw and Fun Quiz.

Make it a fun outing for the whole family while doing your bit to charity and also learn about lupus disease. FYI, Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue. This results in symptoms such as inflammation, swelling, and damage to joints, skin, kidneys, blood, the heart, and lungs.
