2012 Sacramento Arthritis Walk

Since the walk was held last Saturday (May 5th), I thought it was time I updated everyone with pictures, the video of us on stage and our fundraising total.

This year we raised $4851!!!!  That’s over $1500 more than we raised last year!  A huge thank you and heartfelt appreciation goes out to all of those who helped up reach that amount.

As most of you know we collect recyclables and cash them in towards our fundraising for the walk team.  This year’s recycling total was $668.64 which was almost $300 more than last year!

Here is Bevin’s stage debut (please excuse my sun glasses, I HATE public speaking and by keeping them on I didn’t have to make eye contact J)


And here’s pictures of our big day!


The 2012 team Run Bubbas Run-This year 30 people came out to support Bevin!

  2. Would it be okay if I used some of these photos to put on the Arthritis Walk booth at the JA Conference?
    Thanks!

  3. Obesity or even extra pounds can place added stress on your joints, especially weight bearing joints like your hips and knees. Maintaining a healthy weight can reduce this stress and slow down the wear on your joints during daily activities such as walking, or more rigorous activities such as sports participation.

  5. Your daughter looks so gorgeous and can't believe why god has been so unfair. But have you heard of Stem cell therapy? It is a great treatment method that heals arthritis pains and it is supposed to be more effective on children. Since it is a natural healing method, it is safe to try it out as well. Hope this will help your little bundle.
