The last two years (2011, 2012) we participated in our local Arthritis Walk to support our daughter who suffers from an Auto Immune disease that causes joint swelling and inflammation (among other things). Her disease can be very debilitating and yes, even DEADLY. In those two years, we raised about $28,000 dollars.
You can read E’s story HERE.
And you can watch this short movie I made in 2011 to help educate about JA.
Or this one I made later that year for the California Coast CLassic bike ride, where Esella was an Honoree.
This year, we are “taking the year off” from big time fundraising due to how much we have had going on (you know, the pregnancy, selling a house, buying a house. packing, unpacking…)
The walk is TOMORROW Saturday May 4th and we are trying to see just how much we can raise in about 16 hours! FLASH FUNDRAISING!
So, if you feel inclined to support my blog and my family, you can make a donation under my daughter’s name. Let’s see if we can get her to BEAT her grandparents who have raised $1700! Can we do it??
You can make a tax deductible donation in honor of my sweet daughter E HERE. THANK YOU!!
(Though the walk is tomorrow, you can continue to donate through out the entire month of May, as May is Arthritis Awareness Month)
