Amarillo family works to create lupus awareness

Suday an Amarillo family hosted the newly found, Amarillo Lupus Awareness walk, at Sam Houston Park.

After a family member of an Amarillo resident was diagnosed with lupus at the age of 16, family and friends began searching for a way to contribute to finding a cure.

Planning for a lupus awareness walk began, and Sunday morning their efforts were apparent.

"I made her a promise that we would create a walk," said Walk Chairman Angelica Zuniga. We worked on it a couple of months and we got a great response."

May is National Lupus Awareness Month, proceeds from the walk will go to benefit the North Texas Lupus Foundation of America Chapter.
