Allsup Supports “Walk To End Lupus Now 2022” with LFA Heartland Chapter On Saturday, Sept. 10
St. Louis area fundraiser brings together people committed to raising awareness and research funds for lupus in community gathering at Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park
Belleville, Illinois — Aug. 31, 2022 — Allsup, the nation’s premier disability representation company®, is proud to be sponsoring the “Walk To End Lupus Now 2022-St. Louis” scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10, at Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park by the Lupus Foundation of America Heartland Chapter.
Starting at 9 a.m., this in-person event celebrating the theme United – Together – Powerful brings together people in the St. Louis metro area to support lupus awareness and research, raise funds and recognize those who suffer from this devastating disease.
Allsup has supported the work of the foundation in recent years toward goals including to heighten awareness and build an active community of volunteers, people living with lupus, caregivers, healthcare professionals, researchers and donors.
An estimated 16,000 new cases of lupus are diagnosed each year, according to the foundation. Currently, the debilitating autoimmune disease affects approximately 1.5 million Americans. Difficult to diagnose and treat, lupus can affect any organ in the body and cause a range of serious health effects making it impossible for people to continue working.
For more than 38 years, Allsup has helped thousands of individuals with lupus successfully receive their Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI), including monthly income and access to Medicare coverage. SSDI is a federal disability insurance program for U.S. workers and earned with their FICA payroll taxes. More than 156 million Americans are insured for SSDI.
