We are a nonprofit organization focused on helping make the world around us a better place. We organize fundraisers, community-based events, and scholarships for students. Our main focus is to assist in finding a cure for Lupus and Multiple Sclerosis.
The goal of this non-profit is to commemorate the life of Lena Harris. Lena Harris passed away after a long battle with Lupus. She left behind a widowed husband and three wonderful children, Leona, Vanessa and Natasha. In her absence, and through her abiding love the family persevered and achieved many of their goals. Lena Harris was an amazing wife, mother and role model and a perfect example of excellence and determination.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
