A charity event by Persatuan SLE Malaysia (PSLEM) to raise funds for people living with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). SLE is an autoimmune disease where the patient’s immune system produces antibodies that attack his/her own body.
Our regular fund-raising event, Walk-a-Payung (“‘WAP”), a walkathon with umbrellas to show that SLE patients have to avoid the sun, has been postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To ensure everyone’s safety, we are hosting the PSLEM Virtual Run - Walk Run Ride for Lupus Awareness as our year 2022 fund-raising activity.
This new experience will keep us together safely while we are apart due to the coronavirus. The funds will provide social, psychological and financial support to people living with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).
