We have the amazing Chick-fil-A Alden Bridge location planning to sell coffee and breakfast sandwiches during registration and then they’ll be back with sandwiches to sell at lunch!! That’s in addition to some of the hot dogs we will provide! So if hot dogs aren’t your bag then never fear we aim to please!! Plus Cure JM will receive part of the proceeds ?


We also have a fire truck coming at 11:00 and two Tesla cars will be there for pictures and drooling ?

 

There will be three different inflatables that aren’t just for little kids plus everybody’s favorite treat cotton candy!

 

Of course we have a DJ coming to keep the party going during and after the walk.

 

What goes better with music than awesome cheerleaders which we will also have! 40+ members of ORHS Cheer are coming to cheer us on!

 

Finally, face painting and crazy hair booths provided by Teachers and students of Legacy Preparatory Christian Academy and ORHS Cosmetology.

 

It’s not too late to come Saturday and Walk Strong to Cure JM!!

 

All proceeds benefit Cure JM Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Juvenile Myositis, a life-threatening disease which causes the body’s own immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues.  It can cause pain, weakness, inability to walk and disfigurement.  It can affect virtually any system of the body, the heart, lungs, skin, muscles, and more.   And there is no cure....YET!

 

But with support from friends and family like you, we’re getting closer to better treatments and a cure.  Last year, we were able to fund research at 10 prestigious research institutions, helping to advance JM research at an unprecedented pace!  Your support now will keep that momentum going.
