Once again, I am participating in the WALK TO FIGHT ARTHRITIS, where my team and I will be doing a 5km walk to raise funds and awareness for those who suffer with arthritis.
I started doing the walk in memory of my mom who suffered greatly on a daily basis, and I also have Osteo-arthritis and know all too well just how painful it can be. This will be my 5th year of participation and it makes me feel proud to know I am doing my part.
So many people, and yes children included, live with this disease that causes immense pain, immobility and fatigue because the joints are inflamed. Not enough people understand what it takes to live everyday with arthritis. Sadly, a cure does not exist.
Last year we raised $1750.00! My team (DOIN IT WRIGHT FOR DOROTHY) also grew to 10 family members and they all joined me in the walk to raise awareness for those who suffer. Even, my 3 year old granddaughter came along. We walked proudly in our t-shirts with our mom's picture displayed on them.
This year will be the 10th anniversary of the Walk to fight Arthritis and I would like to contribute by making this the best fundraising event ever.
Please help me achieve my goal of raising $2000.00 by donating today and show your support for a better future for people living with arthritis.
