View Comments
Jaiden's Pennies

Not long ago, we told you about 8-year-old Jaiden Rosales and her Pennies for Lupus drive. We are very excited to share fabulous news about her mission.

We invited Jaiden and her grandparents to come back to our studio this morning as we had some friends that wanted to meet Jaiden and help her out. Jaiden reported that so far she had raised $710!

We had a great surprise for her this morning!

Thanks to Comerica and the Lupus Foundation for their help!

Don’t forget tomorrow is the Walk to End Lupus Dallas at Lonestar Park in Grand Prairie. Jaiden’s team is the Krushing Lupus Krewe and they have a Mardi Gras theme. Register and find more information on the Walk To End Lupus Now at lupus.org.
