|Team SoCal is riding for the Arthritis Foundation, Great West Region!|
|Hello Everyone! Rich and I, and our friend Horst Rudrich, are helping to raise awareness and funds for arthritis research! We are heading to Oregon in September 2017 for the Arthritis Foundation's bicycle ride through the Willamette Valley. It is a challenging, 425 mile route that takes place over six days.|
Arthritis destroys the lives of so many people, from the very young to those in their later years. I meet Veterans at work who often tell me how debilitating it feels to live with arthritis. A good friend recently went through a kidney transplant because of this disease. And I've met little children whose lives are threatened, and childhoods interrupted by appointments and hospitalizations.
In what ways has arthritis-related disease affected your life? By joining with us on this journey, we want to increase awareness and knowledge, challenge assumptions, and instill hope for the health and well being of those affected.
We all make choices about where to spend our time, talents, and resources. This campaign intersects in so many ways with our service to children (Rich) and Veterans (me). We believe so much in this cause that we have donated our fundraising minimum. It would be great to see that figure matched and grow to an even larger sum. But we can't do it without your help, in any amount. Please consider donating online through the following link:
Every dollar donated to this cause goes directly to research into advancing arthritis treatment options. Help spread the word! Contact me if you have any questions (email@example.com). And, thank you for your donation to the Arthritis Foundation, Great West Region. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
