Kailin and Kelsey Edgar
In November 2016, Kelsey and I will be running in honor of our little sister, Erin, who was diagnosed with Juevenile Rheumatoid Arthritis the summer before she entered 6th grade. We have all heard of the disease but most of us do not know that one in five adults and 300,000 children including Erin live with arthritis pain every day. Arthritis is more than just aches and pains. For many, it significantly impacts their ability to complete simple tasks like walking, writing, going up and down stairs, or in some cases getting out of bed and getting dressed. Erin has experienced all of these symptoms including pain in her jaw which makes it difficult for her to eat certain foods. For many people of all ages, it is a serious, progressive and potentially fatal disease and we look forward to supporting Erin and the Arthritis Foundation by running in the New York Marathon!!
