Team Spotlight: Maren's Pack
Hi, my name is Maren and I am the 2013 Tarrant County Arthritis Walk Hero.
I’m eleven now, but was diagnosed with systemic juvenile arthritis when I was only 18 months old. I have pain in all of my joints each and every day. With your help maybe we’ll find a cure for arthritis so we all won’t hurt.
We’ve reached our goal of $2,500 but we’re not stopping. Won’t you help me raise more money for research for a cure?
Thank you for helping everyone with arthritis. Especially, the other 24,899 children in Texas with juvenile arthritis. I hope to see you all at the Tarrant County Arthritis Walk on Saturday, April 27 at Tarrant County College - Northeast Campus.
You can support my team here.
Thank you for participating in the 2013 Tarrant County Arthritis Walk, the signature fundraising event for the Arthritis Foundation. Every year, people across the country move together to celebrate those who are making a positive impact on the lives of people living with arthritis.
More than just an event, Arthritis Walk is a celebration of year-round movement. It is building awareness for this debilitating disease and raising necessary funds to drive arthritis research, education and life improvement programs; it also continues the Arthritis Foundation’s search to find a cure to the nation’s leading cause of disability.
