Dear Perpetual Family,
I’m honored to be named this year’s Athlete Ambassador for the Arthritis Foundation’s Cleveland Jingle Bell Run/Walk coming up December 15 th at Legacy Village in Lyndhurst, Ohio. As many of you know, our gym puts on the Cindy for Cindy event for the Arthritis foundation every summer
and to honor my mother, Cindy.
My family and I personally were affected by arthritis, just as many other families are each year. Beyond my personal connection though, as an employer and fitness professional, I know firsthand the devastating effects arthritis can have on people of all ages. It’s the nation’s leading cause of disability affecting more than 54 million Americans, including 300,000 children – that’s more than breast cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Autism combined.
It’s also expensive, costing our economy over $304 billion in lost wages and medical expenses. Locally, it affects 1.3 million Northeast Ohioans, that’s enough people to fill Browns First Energy Stadium 18 times!
I’m pleased to support this cause to bring arthritis out of the shadows, break down stereotypes that it’s just joint pain or it only affects the elderly, and help to create a healthier community locally and beyond. To do so, I’m asking for you to join my Jingle Bell Run team, Team Perpetual
Fitness, and run or walk with us at the event. The Jingle Bell Run is the original festive race for charity focusing on moving for health and wellness, gearing up in your favorite holiday costume and feeling good about doing good.
Our goal is to recruit 20+ participants raising $100 each or equivalent as a team. Thank you to those of you who supported our Cindy for Cindy annual fundraiser in June. We look forward to celebrating with you this holiday season at the Jingle Bell Run!
To get us started, the Arthritis Foundation is offering an exclusive $5 discount to anyone who joins Team Perpetual Fitness. Use code PF2019 when registering online at our team link below. Here’s what you receive by participating:
