“Walk for Lupus” slated for Saturday

lupus foundationAs part of Public Service Day Celebration 2016 the Public Service Day Planning Committee in collaboration with the Lupus Foundation of Dominica has planned a Walk for Lupus on Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 5:00pm.

The Walk for Lupus will commence at the Pottersville Savannah to the Bayfront via the Goodwill link bridge, Hillsborough Street and Cock Street. In an effort to raise awareness of the Lupus Disease individuals taking part in the walk are required to wear purple.

On the walk participants and pedestrians will gain a better understanding of the Lupus disease through placards and conversations with members of the Lupus Foundation of Dominica.

Lupus is an auto immune disease that affects mostly women of African descent of child bearing age and children. This disease can attack any organ and cause chronic pain and debilitating physical and emotional alternations.
Public Service Day will be celebrated on Friday, December 2, 2016 with an Awards and Recognition Ceremony. The theme for this year’s observance is “Embracing the Challenge: Rethink, Rebuild, Transform.”
