A Jingle for Juvenile Arthritis

Dear all family, friends, and anonymous sponsors,

I would like to take this time to say thank you to all of those who supported me during this year’s Jingle Bell Run Fundraiser. First of all, a huge thank you to Mrs. Precht for offering me the privilege to be this year’s youth honoree. I was so honored to have had the opportunity to represent those with arthritis around the Dayton area, and I had so much fun advocating for the cause. 

Next, I would like to thank Up and Running for raising so much support for me throughout the course of the event; especially with the special registration day at Up and Running in Dayton. 

Also, thank you to all of you wonderful people in run group for signing up and being there! I also want to express my gratitude with all of those whom I do not know personally for donating and signing up for the race.

Of course, thank you so much to all of my close family and friends for always sticking with me and supporting me in each and every way possible! 

It was quite the rainy day, so thank you to all who came despite the weather. I totally understood if you weren’t able to make it, and thank you to all of you for your support and donations!

As a quick update, I wanted all of you to know that I am doing great right now! My daily pain is very manageable, and I am currently swimming for Carroll High School where I am super happy to be able to train and compete to the best of my capabilities.

Thank you all again for your continued encouragement and compassion!
