Alabama State University hosted a walk Friday to bring awareness to Lupus and also honor a student who recently lost her battle with the disease.
ASU soccer player Alexandria Ayers died in February.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes the body to attack itself.
Another student battling the disease, Aretha Bettis, was present at the walk Friday.
