As you probably know, my wife Kim suffers from arthritis. Before that time, I thought arthritis was something that only afflicted elderly people and could be dealt with by taking a simple pain killer. I was wrong!
Arthritis impacts us all
Today, 46 million people (one in five) suffer from the pain of arthritis in the United States alone. There are also 300,000 children who are affected by arthritis. It is likely you know people who suffer from arthritis.
Arthritis also imposes a major burden on the economy. Costs to the U.S. economy totals $128 billion annually.
How you can help
A week from today, Saturday, May 2nd, the Fredericksburg Arthritis Walk will be taking place. I am participating in the Arthritis Walk as a part of Let's Move Together, the Arthritis Foundation's nationwide movement that encourages people to move to prevent or treat arthritis.
My fundraising goal this year is $1,000.
I need your help. Please join me in this movement against arthritis by helping me reach my goal. Consider making a donation and sharing this opportunity with your friends.

My special thanks to you
Donating provides you some great benefits. However, I want to give you an additional incentive that is unique and has some value to you and your business.
For a donation of at least $40, I will write a website review here on the Everyday Giving Blog. Just email me ([email protected]) your website url and a keyword phrase to use for the review.
The review will include an image of the website, a description, and two links (one with the keyword phrase and one with the url. The review will provide both links to your website and exposure of your website to the readers of the Everyday Giving Blog. All I ask is that you only submit a “family friendly” website for the review.
If you don’t own a website of your own, consider submitting the website of your favorite charity.
I will also submit a blog post each evening with the names of those who donate at http://www.EverydayGiving.com/arthritiswalk regardless of the amount.
Remember, the walk is in one week. Thank you in advance for your support. I look forward to you joining me in the fight against arthritis.
