Racing For A Cure

My Message
Greetings! Hope the New Year is treating you well. Thank you for visiting my "Racing For A Cure" fundraiser page. My mother in-law, Nancy was recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). "RA is an autoimmune disease where the body is attacking 'self tissues,' beginning in the thin tissue membrane that lines joints. Because the body’s immune system is 'fighting' itself, fluid builds in the joints, often creating swelling, inflammation and significant pain throughout the body" (CureArthritis.org, 2015). As of today, there is no cure for RA. Nancy has now begun her fight against RA and I want to help support Nancy by raising awareness and funds for RA research. On March 14, I am participating in the "Rock 'N' Roll" D.C. Half-Marathon and I will be running in honor of Nancy. Please take a moment to educate yourself on RA by visiting "CureArthritis.Org" and learn how you can make a difference by making a donation towards arthritis research. Thank you for your time! Take care- Katie Meyers

Thank you for racing, Katie, from Mimi and Pappy. RA remains a mystery in the medical field and it's so important to support research. Hopefully, a cure will be found for those disabled by this disease -- especially for the kids.
