“6 in the Sticks” is a six-kilometre Walk/Run taking place starting at the Vankleek Hill fairgrounds on Sunday, August 19, starting at 9 a.m.. This year, the run is a fundraiser for Lupus Ontario. There will be merchandise for sale at the event and a portion of the registration fees will be donated to Lupus Ontario, said Linda Keill, president of Lupus Ontario.

Keill stopped by The Review offices last week to talk a bit about the upcoming fundraiser. She said that she and some volunteers will have a table set up near the beer tent on Sunday, August 19 to accept donations and to raise awareness.

Keill said that the “6 in the Sticks” event raises funds for smaller, lesser-known charities every year. This year, Lupus Ontario was selected. It is classified as a rare disease because only one in 1,000 will be diagnosed with Lupus and of those, 90 per cent are female, said Keill.

À propos de cet organisme

Lupus is a serious chronic condition, but diagnosis and treatment are improving. More and more people with lupus are finding that they can be active and productive as lupus can be treated and somewhat controlled. Controlling the disease is key to living well with lupus. Education and awareness of how your own body reacts to the disease can help an individual deal better with the challenge of living with this condition. An informed patient can watch for warning signs of a flare and manage treatment more effectively. Catching a flare in its early stages can make treatment easier and more effective. A good working relationship with the doctors and the entire treatment team is crucial to the success of treatment. The strong support of family, friends and peer support group members can be equally important. Membership in lupus organizations can be helpful and informative by linking you with others in the community, providing education and additional support.
