Sunday Morning, Edie Gonzales will walk in Lupus Race for Life just like she has every year since 2007. She began walking with her Sister Joyce Lynn who was stricken with Lupus and they walked together, not only at the events but through the daily struggles of the disease. In 2009, Joyce Lynn lost her battle with Lupus but Edie continues to walk not only for her Family but others as well. Join "Team Joyce Lynn" at La Mirada Regional Park 10/21/12 at 7am to Register or to cheer on Edie and her Team. Look for the Butterfly Balloon. Event Info HERE
