Lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease, causes the body’s immune system to become hyperactive and to attack normal, healthy muscles and organs. This leads to inflammation, swelling and damage to the skin, joints, kidneys, blood, heart and lungs.

The disorder is more common among women. Ever Bilena, with its large women clientele, is working closely with Hope for Lupus Foundation to promote early detection and proper treatment of the disease. The foundation logo is currently part of the uniform of Blackwater Elite, Ever Bilena’s official PBA team.

“Hope for Lupus Run” participants can join the 5k, 10k, or 21k race. Lupus patients can join the 1k butterfly warrior march.
