Now that I can walk again, I wanted to say one last official thank you to everyone who helped me reach my goal of fundraising for the Arthritis  See more

THE STORY:

As a runner, I take for granted my ability to just throw on a pair of sneakers in the morning and go. I take my health for granted, so while running the NYC marathon has been a goal of mine, I also really wanted to do something that would make a difference for someone else. My grandmother suffered for years from osteoarthritis. She cursed her joints every day, and was a big factor in my decision to fundraise for the Arthritis Foundation. I will be running this race in her honor. 

Arthritis may seem like a condition for older folks, something that happens to you after years of wear and tear, but that's only one type of arthritis. There are many misconceptions and misunderstandings circling the various types of arthritis. 300,000 kids in the US have arthritis, and many younger women suffer from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a chronic condition that can completely alter a person's life.

Please help me raise the money to help find a cure and educate people about what the many levels of arthritis truly are. The Arthritis Foundation is a truly amazing organization, and together we can all make a difference a little at a time. 

Thank you!
