The Southwest Booster - - NEWS -

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
