Are you a motivated individual who enjoys running, raising money, and helping out a great cause? Do you or someone you know suffer from arthritis? Do you like to travel?
If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, then this could be the right opportunity for you! The Arthritis Society is currently looking for new members to join their Joints in Motion (J.I.M) training program. It is a program where you would be raising money, and at the same time training to take part in either a marathon or trekking experience at many different exiting destinations around the world. Upcoming destinations include marathons in Alaska, Vancouver, Athens, the Cayman Islands, and Honolulu. There is even a Mount Everest base camp trek, for those who crave adventure.
Everybody who participates is asked to honor a hero- somebody they know who suffers from the crippling effects of Arthritis. The Heroes are the ones who give the inspiration and motivation to you while you are participating in the program.
Many people throughout Saskatchewan are “running for the cure.” Local Lakeview resident Teresa Bell is currently training and fundraising to run the Athens, Greece marathon this October with a fundraising goal of $6500. Feel free to visit her website to learn more about Teresa and why she is running.
Being a member of the Joints in Motion training team is a great way to get in shape, travel, and raise money to help a good cause. If this seems like something you would be interested in, visit www.jointsinmotion.ca.
