Painting Back the Road Purple for the ‘Hope for Lupus Run’ This January 21

Are you familiar with the disease called Lupus?! Yes, this is a a chronic autoimmune disease, causes the body’s immune system to become hyperactive and to attack normal, healthy muscles and organs. This leads to inflammation, swelling and damage to the skin, joints, kidneys, blood, heart and lungs. And the disorder is more common among women.

This Sunday, January 21, 2018, yours truly Runner Rocky together with my running group Team Runner Rocky will be up again to support another charity race. Yup this time, it will be for the fight against Lupus! Hence, the race is called Hope for Lupus Run 2018. And the road will be painted purple once more!

Before I share with you more details about this race, check first the tech shirt, the finisher shirt, and the medal design of the charity run which truly excite every runner like me:
