EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I joined the Arthritis Foundation’s TCS New York City Marathon Team to help create a world where people don’t have to struggle to button their shirt, tie their shoe, pick up their child or grandchild, go for a walk, run or bike ride.
Many of us will develop osteoarthritis in our lifetime however the less common and more challenging rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that often start as a child. The Arthritis Foundation team supports more than 50 million people, including 300,000 children, who live with arthritis pain every day.
If you are fortunate enough to live a relatively pain free life and without the challenges of arthritis, stop and remind yourself on your good fortune. Without a doubt, I am very lucky and blessed that now in my 50’s, I am more physically active than in my 20’s. Please consider helping others improve their physical capabilities with my cause.
I set a goal to raise $4,000 and I need your help. With your donation, the Arthritis Foundation leads cutting-edge research, advocates for access to the critical medications, and provides life-changing information and resources to help people like me live a full life.
Your support can help me make a difference.
