The Lupus Foundation of Southern California is looking for 40 enthusiastic and willing volunteers to help us on the LUPUS MILE at the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon and Half.  Our goal is to bring more public awareness and focus to lupus as well as gain funding for the Foundation.  Your support will help us improve the lives of the many, many San Diegans affected by this disease. No experience is necessary. Volunteers help make this event happen. You will be supporting the over 8000 participants reach their goal of completing the Carlsbad Marathon or Half Marathon.  All volunteers will receive an official Race Crew T-shirt and the appreciation of thousands of participants who’ll love you for your support!

Volunteers are needed at 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 15, 2017 on the LUPUS MILE, at the corner of Avenida Encinas and Palomar Airport Rd.  The day starts out dark and cold, so dress in layers, but warms up quickly.  The jobs are either cheering on the runners and/or handing out water and energy goo to the runners.  Not hard, lots of fun and you will be done by 10:30 a.m. with the whole rest of the day to do what you want.

Students can receive community service credit for helping and gratitude from the Lupus Foundation of Southern California.  So if you are available to join the volunteer team please sign-up online today.     It’s a day when fitness, exercise and community are about something more than who’s across the finish line first.…it’s a journey of moments that will challenge, inspire and change you!

Beer to the Rescue for People with Lupus

Beer to the Rescue for People with Lupus

After several years of life-impacting suffering, Hernández was diagnosed with Lupus in 2014. Rather than simply be a victim, he decided to invoke the strength of San Diego’s renowned brewing community to make a positive difference for people living with Lupus. “Most people have heard about Lupus or know someone who suffers from it, but few know anything beyond the name of this autoimmune disease—what it is, its effect on those who have it or the fact that it is severely under-researched,” says Hernández. “It affects a large number of people in the U.S., yet there isn’t even a test to determine whether someone has Lupus, nor are there Lupus-specific drugs to help people live with this lifelong condition. This needs to change and, thanks to the compassion, energy and generosity of the craft breweries participating in Beer to the Rescue, 2015 holds a great deal of promise for those so ably assisted by the LFSC and the positive initiatives the agency is integrally involved with.”

The following is a list of the brewing companies participating in the Beer to the Rescue campaign. Most will produce beers, while others with more limited brewing capacity will take part in various other ways such as donations, special events and making the LFSC a featured charity at their public venues.

The first beer to be released as part of the Beer to the Rescue campaign will be Hildegard, a triple India pale ale (IPA) lent to the cause by Benchmark Brewing Company. The beer will debut during a release event at the company’s tasting room (6190 Fairmount Avenue, Suite G, San Diego, CA 92120) beginning at 12 p.m. on Saturday, January 31. LFSC representatives will be on-hand to speak with patrons and the beer will be served in a commemorative glass guests may take home with them.

Other upcoming beers include a Belgian-style quadrupel from Nickel Beer Co., a dry-hopped Belgian-style table beer brewed with rhubarb from Monkey Paw Pub & Brewery, and an imperial milk stout infused with chocolate, orange and spicy chilies from Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits.

Information about future beers and their availability as well as Beer for the Cure events will be posted on the campaign’s Facebook page and via its Twitter account (@BeerToTheRescue). The LFSC and participating breweries will also post information about beers and events on their websites and social media accounts. Beers are scheduled to release one-or-two per month through December, with at least three breweries releasing beers during the month of May in honor of Lupus Awareness Month.

Interview opportunities with participating brewers, venues, campaign personnel and representatives from the Lupus Foundation of Southern California are available. Numerous venues are open to beer-tasting and live broadcast segments upon request.
