Family friendly JDRF fundraiser at Cinema Twin Theatre this Sunday
Southwest families can enjoy a family-friendly way to support the Fifth Annual Walk to Fight Arthritis this Sunday in Swift Current
Taiyah Reinhart, a Walk to Fight Arthritis 2014 Ambassador from Swift Current, will be hosting Taiyah’s Movie Fundraiser at the Cinema Twin Theatre on Sunday where a special showing of Frozen will be held at 1 p.m. followed by The Lego Movie at 3:30 p.m. The double feature can be viewed for a $10 donation.
After the movie there will be a short one kilometre walk to show your support in the fight against Arthritis.
Events to fundraise for the 5th annual Walk to Fight Arthritis will be hosted in over 25 communities coastto-coast, raising funds and awareness for the country’s leading chronic condition.
The Walk unites families, friends and organizations in a common goal of delivering support and solutions for the over 4.6 million Canadian adults and children living with arthritis. A leading cause of disability, arthritis costs Canada’s economy an estimated $33 billion a year in medical care and lost productivity. Funds from the Walk support promising research, education and local programs and care for Canadians with arthritis wherever they live. This year’s theme asks participants: “Who Moves You?” This reflects the fact that most participants are walking for someone close to them who lives with arthritis. Sheldon and Kristin Reinhart are walking with their six-year-old daughter Taiyah, who was diagnosed with Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis at the age of 15 Months.
“We had no idea how extensive the impact of arthritis would be on our lives,” says her parents. “However, watching Taiyah through this journey has been truly inspiring. She teaches us to appreciate the simple things in life and is wise beyond her six years.” Movie tickets can be purchased by contacting Sheldon at 306-741-1674, Kristin at 306-774-4367 or from Babble Baby.Kids
