Let’s Move Together…At Arthritis Walk

Maya from Loving With Chronic Illness:

“On May 15th I’ll be walking to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation with my team, the “NYC Sick Chick Club.” I’ve lived with a painful and progressive form of arthritis called Spondylitis since I was a little girl. Each day I pray for a cure and am forever grateful to organizations like the Arthritis Foundation that work tirelessly toward this goal.”

    Maya,

    You are a hero in my eyes for letting others know about your situation and encouraging them to get involved in the fight against arthritis. It would be easier to hide in the shadows…

    I will be joining your fight this year by participating in the Richmond Arthritis Walk. I am looking forward to it.

    Roger, your comment means the world to me! I hope you know that you’re a hero too. IS the Richmond Arthritis Walk around the same time as the NYC one? I will be cheering you on from here.

    Maya,

    We will be cheering each other.

    The Richmond Arthritis Walk is at Kings Dominion on the morning of April 30th. I am really excited because it is the first year we are holding the walk at a major amusement park!

    Thanks for your involvement in the Arthritis Walk. Together we will help people the millions of people, like you and my wife, who suffer from arthritis.
