This event was used to raise money to support Arthritis research. The non-competitive 5K walk (3.1 miles), with a one-mile option, is expected to raise $62,000 to support local Arthritis Foundation programs, services and research that hopefully will lead to a cure. More than one million people of all ages in Kentucky have been diagnosed with arthritis, that’s 32 percent of the state’s adults. Kentucky ranks second in the country for the highest incidence of arthritis in adults. And nearly 4,000 children in the state have been diagnosed with arthritis. Fibromyalgia affects about five million Americans and is a condition associated with widespread chronic pain, fatigue, memory problems and mood changes. Rheumatoid arthritis, a systemic autoimmune disease, affects 1.5 million Americans. Women are two to three times more likely to get RA than men. RA can affect more than joints. The heart, lungs, eyes, blood vessels, nervous system and more can be involved. Juvenile arthritis affects nearly 300,000 children, more than the number of children affected with juvenile diabetes and cystic fibrosis combined. The Arthritis Foundation (www.arthritis.org) is committed to raising awareness and reducing the unacceptable impact of arthritis, which strikes one in every five adults and 300,000 children, and is the nation’s leading cause of disability. To conquer this painful, debilitating disease, we support education, research, advocacy and other vital programs and services.

The money raised with Light The Night supports The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s
mission to cure blood cancers and improve the lives of our patients and their families.
Seventy-three percent of our total expenses supports research and local patient services
such as family support groups, financial assistance and education programs. The Society
invests more than $71 million annually in blood cancer research. Included in that
tremendous figure are projects totaling more than $6.8 million at UNC-Chapel Hill and
Duke University. Since its founding, the Society has awarded more than $600 million in
research grants. This important science has doubled and tripled the survival rates for
blood cancer patients in the last 40 years. One Society sponsored grant has led to great
achievement through the discovery of the “miracle pill” Gleevec, keeping one type of
leukemia, CML, in long-term remission.

Hey Matt!

I hope all is well with you! I just wanted to update you on the 2010 Memory Walk that I participated in. We had a great turn out of people! My team was just as large as last year, which was a great accomplishment considering the rain that we experienced 🙂 All together, the walk has raised $60,000 so far. We are still receiving donations, so I am very excited to hear the final tally of the money that my team raised! I have a attached some pictures from the event. I will keep you updated on our success! I am so looking forward to this summer! Please let me know the dates of your other pageants, whenever you finalize them. I would love to attend and help out in any way that I can! Have a blessed week! God bless!
