The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Our grass roots effort to launch the inaugural LA Autoimmune Walk has raised 25K so far with no media help. Please join us on November 8th in Culver City Park as we raise funds and awareness for Autoimmune Diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type 1 Diabetes, Juvenile Arthritis, Lupus, Cardiomyopathy, Relapsing Polychondritis, Dermatomyositis, MS, Polymyositis, Crohn's, IBS, Raynaud's, Sjorgren's and many more that are rare and life threatening.
The rise of autoimmunity is rapid among our populations and the research is lagging. Why? A perfect brew of environmental toxins, stress and genetics can cause our bodies to attack themselves. We are passing this along to the next generation. It is our mission to spread the word to young people. Awareness is key! Research is needed.
Would you walk with us the short one mile route? Or donate to fund research? Or just come on out to enjoy an afternoon of great rock and roll, lawn games and community. Celebrity red carpet, too. Hosted by Haley Ramm (ABC Family's Chasing Life, Disconnect, X Men The Last Stand and more,) AARDA (American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association) Celebrity Ambassador.
