I believe that a child’s ambition, hopes, and dreams should not be limited by Arthritis.
It is that time of year again where our family (Shirley, Chris, Nicholas and Daniel) is dedicated run a marathon and raise awareness and funds to help support children with arthritis. The kids will probably dash to the finish line in record time while the parents will take it slow and steady.
One out of every 1000 healthy children is affected by arthritis. Together we can help to improve the lives of children with arthritis and strive towards better treatments, outcomes and a step closer to a cure.
Please help us by making a contribution to achieve our fundraising goal. All funds will go to the Rheumatology Division at SickKids in addition to supporting a scholarship to send a teen with juvenile arthritis to university/college.
Thank you for supporting our family marathon.
Help me raise money for Kids with Arthritis by supporting either SickKids Foundation or the Dr. Bonnie Cameron Post-Secondary Scholarship.
The Dr. Bonnie Cameron Post-Secondary Scholarship is presented in honour of the inspiring work, dedication, and indefatigable energy and spirit of Dr. Bonnie Cameron and the entire Rheumatology staff at SickKids Hospital in Toronto. Patients, parents, and SickKids Staff are forever grateful for her generous spirit, engaging personality, and never-give-up attitude! Her patients learned to be forward-looking, seek out their full potential, and flourish even under the spectre of arthritis. We all learned that with Dr. Cameron behind you, anything is possible!
The scholarship assists students, who have been diagnosed by a physician and are living with inflammatory arthritis, in achieving their educational goals. It is presented annually by Runanthropic.org, in co-ordination with their signature fundraising event, the Art In Motion 10K.
The scholarship award is $2,500. Application information can be found at: http://runanthropic.org/dr-bonnie-cameron-post-secondary-scholarship/
