The past several months have found us working on numerous new ways to support finding a cure for arthritis. We have created new fundraisers, a new shop on Etsy where proceeds are being donated to research, and we’ve registered for another year of Walking for a Cure.
Please keep an eye out on our events page for all of the latest information as we will be sure to post all info there.
Our first stop for you to check out is our 20×20 fundraising campaign with the Arthritis National Research Foundation. We have set a goal of raising $400 through this campaign. Over 90% of funds raised go directly towards research in finding a cure. To join our campaign simply follow this link https://curearthritis.salsalabs.org/2020/t/mackenziessidekicks. The goal is to have everyone donate just $20 then start a 20×20 campaign of their own. Help us find that cure!
Our second stop for you to check out is our all new Etsy shop. Here we are selling Washable Comfort bags in all different sizes and patterns. These comfort bags are great for soothing the aches and pains associated with arthritis, sore muscles, headaches, pregnancy, cramps and much more. They are made with a muslin insert filled with plain white rice then inserted into a washable decorative outer pocket. Throw the muslin rice filled bag in the freezer and store for times when an injury calls for an ice pack and it’s mess free. To visit the shop please follow this link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MackenzieSidekicks. Half of all proceeds at this shop are being donated to the Arthritis National Research Foundation in honor of Mackenzie.
Finally, please be sure to check out our Walk Page for the 2018 Walk to Cure Arthritis in Grand Rapids. The Walk has a new location this year. We have moved to Millenium Park this year and it’s on a Sunday afternoon. Great for those that have always had Saturday morning sports conflicts. To check out our Team Page and to register for the walk, please follow this link: https://events.arthritis.org/team/mackenziessidekicks.
The rest of our exciting fundraisers will be announced soon on our events page. We hope to see you out at one of these great events soon!
