BENEFITING: Arthritis Foundation
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2013
Not all moms are like my mom. She is an amazingly generous, sweet, and caring woman. The person I am today is due in large part to my mom's example of giving more of yourself than you ask of others and unconditional love for friends and family. My mom has had arthritis for 15 years. I always thought of arthritis as a thing old people get that makes their joints ache when it rains. Since my mom has been suffering from it for this long, I now know it is a chronic, crippling, deforming, painful, horrible disease. I am running in a half ironman and trying to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation. The Arthritis Foundation has contributed over $450 million to arthritis research in its 64 year history.
Please help me raise money to help combat this disease that has impacted my family so closely. Thanks so much!
