The Local Take On WCLK: Vitiligo Man of Action Perry Whaley

vitiligo_race.jpg

This week on The Local Take I speak with Perry Whaley, the Vitiligo Man of Action, about his upcoming 5K race taking place on June 2 in Conyers, Georgia.  Perry Whaley explains to us that vitiligo is an auto-immune deficiency that causes a loss in melanin causing the skin to become "spotty." He also shares that the stigma associated with this condition causes many people to self-isolate. Perry has dedicated his life to this cause. On June 2, he is inviting the community to join forces to participate in a 5K.  This race is for people who have vitiligo and who support those who do. 

To participate in the 5K register now.
