On April 21, 2008 Cheri Fleming and Gina Marotta were featured on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight to talk about the Arthritis Foundation and the ‘2008 Arthritis Walk’ which was held on April 27, 2008 at Bridgeport Park in Valencia.
The KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight, hosted by Janice Murray, airs Mondays and Fridays at 10am on AM-1220 KHTS and is sponsored by Providence Holy Cross Health Center.
Funds raised from the walk help to support Arthritis Foundation research, public health and public policy efforts to improve the lives of people with arthritis.
It is estimated that arthritis affects nearly 35,000 people in the Santa Clarita Valley. Included in that figure are men, women and children. Nationwide, 46 million Americans, including 300,000 children are living with the pain of arthritis. It is fundraising events like the ‘Arthritis Walk’ that provide the hope that one day, a cure will be found.
Cheri and Don Fleming are the Co-Chairs of this years walk. Cheri has a personal connection as well as she too lives with Arthritis. Don and Cheri Fleming are committed to doing everything they can to help find a cure for this debilitating disease.
Our thanks to Cheri Fleming and Gina Marotta for spending time with us on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight
