Kure for Kate - Help me find a cure  
Kure for Kate



I am taking on the challenge to make a difference in our community by participating in the Arthritis Walk as part of "Let's Move Together," the Arthritis Foundation's nationwide movement that encourages people to move to prevent or treat arthritis.

Why am I involved? It's estimated that there are over 300,000 children fighting the battle against Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and I am one of them. Many kids suffer for years undiagnosed  as casualties of  the national shortage of pediatric rheumatologists across the nation.  My personal struggle began at the age of 13 and has redefined my aspirations and career goals.  My disease has brought me enlighten and the desire to  put a face  on the  1 in 5 people who suffer from the pain of arthritis. By the year 2030, 67 million people in the U.S., or 1 in 4 adults, will be living with arthritis.*  We need  to  find a cure.

I am taking on the challenge to make a difference in our community by participating in the Arthritis Walk as part of "Let's Move Together," the Arthritis Foundation's nationwide movement that encourages people to move to prevent or treat arthritis.

Join me in the movement and help me reach my goal.  "Let's Move Together" to improve lives and reduce the pain of arthritis suffers young and old.

Thank you so much for your support. Every dollar you give is one step closer to a cure for Kate.

I know it's a lot to ask because you guys don't even know me personally but I thought it was worth asking anyways.
