ALLIANCE FOR LUPUS RESEARCH TAPS SYNDICATED RADIO PERSONALITY LIZ BLACK AS NATIONAL AMBASSADOR

New York’s Alliance For Lupus Research has tapped radio personality Liz Black to raise awareness of Lupus. “We are thrilled to have Liz Black to serve as our first ever National Ambassador and New Jersey Walk with Us to Cure Lupus Celebrity Chair,” says ALR President Kenneth M. Farber. “ Liz is an outstanding spokesperson who can reach a wide audience to spread awareness of lupus to help further our mission to one day find a cure.”

The 2014 New Jersey Walk with Us to Cure Lupus event takes place May 10, 2014 at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Registration begins at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. Participants will walk to raise a goal of $650,000 for Lupus research. Over $386,000 has already been collected towards the goal for the New Jersey walk.

New York Tri-State gospel music lovers know the vibrant voice of Liz Black very well. For almost a decade, she’s hosted “Sunday Praise with Liz Black” Sunday mornings on WBLS 107.5 and Sunday afternoons on WLIB 1190 AM.

“Liz Black lives the Gospel she believes,” says WBLS/WLIB Program Director Skip Dillard. “Her Ministry goes far beyond the airwaves and no matter what, you’ll find a smile on Liz’s face that serves as a testimony to her faith and love of sharing it with others.” Last year, the Rejoice Musical Soulfood radio network took Black’s engaging personality nationwide with her syndicated Sunday afternoon radio program, “Inspirations with Liz Black.”

“Liz Black is the perfect Celebrity Chair for the New Jersey event; a caring, charismatic individual who has access to the Tri-State region through her on-air assignments and breadth of relationships with people who serve others,” says MetLife Stadium President and CEO, Brad Mayne. “It is a pleasure to work with Liz on such an important project to raise awareness of this debilitating disease and raise funds for research to find a cure for Lupus.” For more information or to participate, log on at http://www.lupusresearch.org
