The Second Annual Living With Lupus Walk

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

Rachelle Roy and a host of supporters held the second annual Living With Lupus Walk on Sunday, May 22, at Ottawa Park to conclude a weekend of activities designed to raise the awareness of lupus in the Toledo area.

Dozens of those afflicted by lupus and their family members and supporters turned out to bear witness to ravages of lupus and to raise money for the Lupus Foundation.

The highlight of Sunday’s event occurred when Roy selected three of those afflicted to release white doves, symbolic of the release they might one day experience from pain and discomfort, and in an offering to the Holy Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Felicia Howard, Tymeeka Gipson and Schatzia Depp released their captive birds one at a time to the cheers of the onlookers
