BENEFITING: ARTHRITIS FOUNDATION NORTHEAST REGION INC
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
I am excited to be running this year’s Boston Marathon for the Arthritis Foundation. I want to help this awesome organization in its mission to lead research to find better treatments and a cure for this painful disease that affects adults and children of all ages.
Sometimes we don’t realize what we really take for granted and how something as simple as running or walking is hard for so many people because they live with a disease that takes that ability away. That’s the reality for more than 300,000 kids who live with juvenile arthritis, a painful inflammatory disease that can make running, walking or even picking up a crayon painful or even impossible.
My goal right now is to raise $1,000. Any donations will be greatly appreciated! Thank you! =)
