Arthritis Walk Update

I just wanted to thank everyone who supported me in the Arthritis Walk. With your help, I was the top fundraiser in Hagerstown this year. I raised $548 that goes directly to the Arthritis Foundation for their programs. They even asked me to sit on the committee to plan the event next year.

Donna Morgan of Frederick was the winner of the Americana Drink Dispenser raffle.

A big thank you goes out to everyone who purchased a raffle ticket or made a donation to this worthy cause.

If you are or someone you love is affected by arthritis, there are many programs available to help. Visit for more information.

Our Mommy’s Walk for the Arthritis Foundation

Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans will get some form of arthritis?  Our Mommy, Ranee, one of the registered veterinary technicians at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital, suffers from a form of arthritis called Ankylosing Spondylitis.  It is a chronic, painful, degenerative inflammatory arthritis primarily affecting the spine, sacroiliac joints, and the lower limbs.  It can even cause fusion of the spine.  This type of arthritis is an autoimmune spondyloarthropathy and has a probable genetic link.

We will be taking our Mommy to participate in the Arthritis Foundation’s 2008 Arthritis Walk in Hagerstown, MD on June 28th.  Please click here to visit her website to learn more, join her team or perhaps even make a contribution to this worthy cause.  Your generosity will ensure that the Arthritis Foundation will continue to lead the way toward prevention, control and cure of the number one cause of disability.

Thank you for your support!
