Why we do what we do

It’s often hard to see immediate results of hard work. Usually it takes continuous effort and lots of time before the fruits of your labor are visible. This is especially the case when your work is in the pursuit of an arthritis cure.

Today the Arthritis Foundation Upper Midwest Region’s Leadership Board got together for their annual year-end meeting. During his introduction to the group, Chair George Liberatore shared a touching moment he experienced at Camp M.A.S.H. (Make Arthritis Stop Hurting) which reminded him of the importance of the work the Arthritis Foundation does.

While walking to the mess hall after participating in some camp activities, George listened to a longtime Camp M.A.S.H. donor reflect on the progress of arthritis treatment. “Years ago, when it was meal time, I would see tons of wheelchairs, crutches and other walking aids propped up here,” she said, gesturing toward the side of the mess hall. “Today I see none. That’s proof we’re doing something right.”

Help the Arthritis Foundation continue its quest of improving the lives of the 1 in 5 adults and 300,000 kids living with arthritis in the U.S. Donate to the Arthritis Foundation on Give to the Max Day on Thursday, Nov. 15. Each donation, big or small, leads us closer to a cure for arthritis.

RSVP to the Facebook event and the AFUMR will remind you on Give to the Max Day.
