I would like to thank all who have supported Ride For Lupus for the last 4 years. To all my family and friends who have been there in one way or anher, and to all the friends I now call family I've made along the way, I cannot thank you all enough. I had planned on doing this event for 5 solid years, however the decline in my health over the last year (the whole reason for the event, to raise awareness) has put me in a position where my health has to be my main focus. For those that are close to me and help behind the scenes, you know this has been an incredibly difficult decision. The last 4 years, this event has helped so many and it is my hope the participants of RFL will carry what they've learned with them and continue the conversation. To all who have contributed toward the fundraising, on behalf of the Pediatric Lupus Research Unit at the Hospital for Sick Kids, and myself, our sincere gratitude; every cent donated has gone directly to the lab where Dr. Silverman and his incredible team continue to work hard on understanding this life altering, horrible, chronic illness that affects so many. I will always be available for support, so please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you all again so very much, and I look forward to seeing you out on the road!

Why the Purple Butterfly?

Ride For Lupus - Butterfly Rash The purple butterfly represents the rash most Lupus patients have, more often than not on their face. It is called the Butterfly rash, is purple and expands over the face from one cheek bone, over the bridge of the nose and over the other cheek bone, looking very much like a butterfly has landed on the face, hence the name, Butterfly rash. This is symbolic for all Lupus patients.
