Dear Friends and Family

Hey everyone! I don't know if you all remember me doing this each year but Stratton, my Grandma Marge, my Grandpa John, my Mom, my Sister and I have been doing the Jingle Bell Run for the last 2 years! This year will be our 3rd year! If you would like to help us out by donating it would be very much appreciated! OR you can come out and cheer us on our 1 mile run. We stick to the 1 mile because it's easier for Stratton to be able to run it.

Thank you in advance for all your help not only monetarily but morally also.

Dear Friends and Family,

The holiday season is all about giving. I am doing my part by tying jingle bells to my shoelaces and raising funds for the Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis.

Did you know that arthritis is the leading cause of disability? It affects more than 50 million Americans including over 300,000 children – yes, kids get arthritis too. Arthritis is much more than just aches and pains.

For many, it significantly impacts their ability to complete simple tasks like dressing themselves or even walking.

Here are some pictures from the last two years you can read about the 2010 Run Here and the 2009 Run Here. Enjoy!

 2009 Look how little Stratton was!

Emily, John and I will be there with "bells" on but maybe not as many as last year. Was lots of fun.
