Brenda Blackmon is the founder of “The Kelly Fund for Lupus, Inc.” an organization she created in 2008 after her daughter Kelly was diagnosed with lupus in 2003. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to supporting those affected by lupus, educating the public, and helping to find a cure.

Walk With Brenda To Help Find A Cure For Lupus

Metlife Stadium – East Rutherford, NJ Walk

Brenda will arrive by 8am, walk starts 9:00 am

The purpose of the Walk is to raise desperately needed funds to support lupus research.  100% of every dollar you and your team raise will go to support lupus research programs because ALR’s Board of Directors funds all administrative and fundraising costs.  Every year several worthy research grants are not funded because we simply do not have enough money to fund every great project.  Therefore, the more money you and your teammates are able to raise the more research we can fund. To thank you for your hard work we’d like to reward your fundraising efforts with these incentives.
