Thanks to everyone who came & were there in spirit at the 2009 CARRA Costume Ball!

What a blast!!! Over 350 people participated
& we raised over $4k to support Friends Of CARRA!CARRA stands for Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance. It is made up of 246 pediatric rheumatologists from across the U.S. and Canada. They have come together to collaborate and conduct high quality clinical research to find the answers to the many questions about childhood rheumatic disease, such as: What is the cause? What are the best treatments? What are the long term outcomes? How can damage be avoided? What is the cure? CARRA's doctors are working together to find the answers.

CARRA is the group of pediatric rheumatologists. We are the "Friends of CARRA" and now the participants in the Costume Ball are too! The funds raised at the CARRA Costume Ball is going to make a difference in the lives of the over 300,000 children in the US living with arthritis. Friends of CARRA is a totally volunteer group.
