Beaumont Elementary Students Prepare to Walk for Pediatric Lupus Research

Friday, April 11th will find Beaumont Elementary students spending their lunch recess in a healthy way: walking.

This is not just due to spring weather finally arriving, so that everyone wants to be outside, but because they want to contribute to health and well-being in a larger sense by raising funds for the Lupus Foundation of America, specifically for pediatric research.

Having learned all about lupus at an assembly last week (it's an autoimmune inflammatory disease that affects over 1.5 million Americans. More than 25% of all lupus cases occur before the age of 20 and it can affect any organ or system of the body) the students have been busy getting sponsors and getting ready to walk.
