Social Butterflies Foundations mission is to provide education, support services, and encouragement to empower and uplift those living with lupus and fibromyalgia in an effort to help them and their families face the challenges of these debilitating illnesses that have no cure. There are over 195,000 Virginians combined living with lupus and/or fibromyalgia. Butterfly Walk participants share in a fun family-friendly day, filled with lupus and fibromyalgia awareness, education, empowerment, music, kids corner, and other festivities. Survivors and families unite for one unified purpose- to make these invisible illnesses visible. It is also an opportunity to bond and form new relationships while realizing that they are not alone in the fight!

Social Butterflies Foundation is the first and only organization located in the Hampton Roads community devoted to providing resources to both lupus and fibromyalgia survivors while raising awareness for illnesses that receive little to no attention yet threatens so many lives. It is our vision that no one living with lupus or fibromyalgia will have to endure the challenges of these life-threatening illnesses alone. Funds raised from the Walk are used to provide emergency financial assistance, support groups, educational services, summits and health fairs, college scholarships, community outreach programs, advocacy, and to support research.

In 2019, we were able to create a new support group in Virginia Beach and a teen support group. We were also able to provide emergency medical financial assistance, host a summit and health fair, and provide over 200 free wigs with kits for survivors who are suffering alopecia due to their illness. With your support and the support of the community, we know we can raise more so that we can do more this year!
