Yesterday (World Lupus Day) about 40 people went to Regents park london to take part in a 5k walk/run to raise money for St Thomas' Lupus Trust! We all dressed as butterflies and Louis Marriette (Fashion Designer/judge on Britains Next Top Model) came along to support us too. As he opened the race he brought attention to our cause on the loud speaker to the other 1000ish runners! So lots of publicity for Lupus!! Not sure what the total amount raised is but I personally raised £400!

Everyone did really well and even though most of us probably can't walk today (I certainly can't!) everyone finished and in good times!

Weather was superb and it was great to meet other Lupies and also to meet Angie from St Thomas'!

Go to my user profile to see some pics!!

Well done !!!!

It's funny how adrenaline will get us through a lot - just hope you won't pay too much for it now. Do watch out for yourself, especially as you really haven't been doing so good lately.

hugs :hug:

Well done Mooks - we're proud of you and the others who gave up their vital energy for the Cause! Thanks again.

Long hot bath now with lots and lots of soothing bath salts, perfumed candles and calming music, followed by fluffy warm towel and a good movie - you really deserve it!
