Race for CARRA

We would like to invite you to walk with our family & celebrate the opportunity of finding a cure for arthritic diseases in children.

Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases affect an estimated 300,0000 children in the U.S.

Charlotte is one of those 300k!

Charlotte is currently taking 4 different medications to find the right medical cocktail for her in order to get the arthritis in her eyes under control (yes, that’s another place for arthritis to go!). In the 6 months since she’s been diagnosed (on her 2nd birthday), arthritis has gone to her 2 knees, an ankle,a wrist & both eyes.

The 3rd Annual Race for CARRA is a benefit for the Childhood Arthritis & Rheumatology Research Alliance. All proceeds go directly to CARRA to help fund research to find the cause and cure of Arthritis and other Rheumatic Diseases in children.

The Race for CARRA is a non-timed, non-competitive 5k run/walk for the entire family.

Sign up online:

WHEN: 8:30 on Sunday June 8th, 2008. Strollers are welcome.
WHERE: The route takes you along the Willamette River on the Eastbank Esplanade and around the Oregon Convention Center.



We would be honored & humbled to walk with your family!
Love, Erika, Ryan, Emma, Ellie & Charlotte
