The 5 th Annual LIVEFIT WITH LUPUS Golf Outing will be held on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at Palmer Hills Golf Course in Bettendorf, Iowa. As a business leader, we are reaching out to you in hopes of partnering with you on the event. Your support will provide the opportunity for an afternoon of golf with us. In addition, your business will receive marketing throughout the community.
LIVEFIT WITH LUPUS (LFWL) is a non-profit, 501c3 organization created to bring awareness to lupus and other autoimmune diseases. Our mission is “to promote health and wellness, inspire others to overcome their own obstacles and create autoimmune disease awareness in the community and around the globe.” Currently,
LFWL offers nutritional counseling, specialty physician referral resources, fitness education, beauty wellness, psychological, and emotional support. Our future goal is to build an education outreach center in the Quad-Cities to serve as a retreat for those affected by autoimmune disorders.
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to function improperly, attacking normal healthy cells and tissue. It is unpredictable, debilitating, and destructive. An estimated 3 million people suffer from lupus in the United States. In addition to lupus, researchers have identified over 100 autoimmune diseases affecting more than 24 million Americans and increasing each year. As a lupus survivor and fighter, I have experienced first-hand the devastating effect lupus can take on the body as it has attacked my kidneys, lungs, skin, heart and brain resulting in seizures, nephritis and bouts of existence in a wheel chair. I refused to let my future be dictated by my disease and chose the path of education and awareness.
In addition to the Golf Outing, LFWL has other fundraising efforts planned throughout the year, including the annual Dancing with the QC Stars to be held at the Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf on November 29 and our Race & Festival~ HILLS of the QC in 2019. We encourage you to partner with us for the Golf Outing. Please find attached a breakdown of sponsorship levels and benefits. In addition to providing funding for important causes, your sponsorship will receive visibility and recognition as we promote our events and market your company through community outreach and social media.
Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to partnering with you to raise awareness for autoimmune diseases. Please visit our above link to learn more about our foundation's mission and vision.
