Ciara Wilson, Miss Oregon Junior Pre-teen Queen, has been busy raising funds to help find a cure for Juvenile Arthritis! Ciara, an active girl that enjoys competitive dance and ski racing was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis two years ago. This disease affects over 300,000 American children. Currently, she is doing well and enjoying her active lifestyle. Ciara realized that many kids with Juvenile Arthritis suffer with no cure in sight. As a result she has organized her own fundraiser called “Ciara’s Day of Dance” to support CARRA, the Childhood Arthritis & Rheumatology Research Alliance. She organized a dance party with her friends to support this great cause. Ciara raised over $400 to help find a cure for Juvenile Arthritis! Check out the website to see more!
In addition, Ciara attended the Jingle Bell Run Kick-Off Party which benefits the Arthritis Foundation of Oregon. The festivities were held at the Nike World Headquarters on October 23, 2011. The Jingle Bell Run takes place in downtown Portland, Oregon on December 4, 2011 . In the photos, Ciara is pictured with the Grand Marshall for the run, Annise Nassib, and the Youth Grand Marshall, Owen Dye. She looks forward to volunteering at the upcoming holiday event!

Ciara plans to continue her volunteering and fund raising efforts in 2012 to help kids with Juvenile Arthritis!
Stephanie Ramos, 2011 NAM Kentucky Teen Queen, has been working with the Dare To Dream Organization. It is a beauty and talent showcase for children with special needs.
In line with Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, Megan’s community involvement centered around encouraging children to become more fit. Today, in America, nearly one in three children is overweight or obese.
She had an amazing time visiting local preschools and reading, exercising and visiting with them. They talked about different ways of exercising and staying fit, and how to eat healthy. She was so pleased to see one center with a vegetable garden! The children were so enthusiastic to tell her all about what they were growing and the different ways they liked their vegetables prepared. Her visits always included some group dancing and tumbling, which they really enjoyed, as did Megan!
She also participated in the local Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation walk for a cure. As juvenile diabeties is sometimes linked with childhood obesity, she felt this was in line with my project. She thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful afternoon, proudly walking with friends and families of those affected by the disease, while raising awareness.
Her efforts will not stop here. She is a girl who is striving to be a role model by making fitness a prioity in my life, for a stonger, smarter and healthier future.
