NENY & CNY Walk Photos Tell the Story

The capacity of a community to come together for a specific cause, particularly a cause that receives little media coverage and is widely misunderstood, is both astounding and uplifting. The Northeast and Central New York communities came together on March 19th and April 2nd, respectively, at each region’s 10thannual Walk to Shine the Light on Lupus. The Northeast New York region beat their goal of $15,000 by $3,083 for a total of $18,083. The Central New York region raised $16,000 so far and funds are still being received. The photos taken by our generous photographers tell the story better than I ever could. Take a look (click on the folders) and, please, let them know how much you appreciate their participation!
