Healing Hands Fundraiser for Arthritis Sept. 19
Saturday, September 08, 2012
On September 19th, Massage Envy Clinics nationwide will host a Healing Hands for Arthritis event. The RI clinics are proud to participate and donate $10 from every massage and facial session to the Arthritis Foundation.
Healing Hands for Arthritis
This one-day event, “Healing Hands for Arthritis", raises funds for this chronic disease that affects one in five adults, as well as 300,000 children, which is the leading cause of disability in the United States. And arthritis does not just strike adults. The Arthritis Foundation of RI works very closely with Sarah, an 11-year-old girl from Cumberland who was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis in July of 2009. The arthritis affects her jaw, wrists, fingers, knees, ankles and toes, making it difficult to do everyday tasks such as opening containers and doors, writing assignments, carrying school books, and fully participating in PE class. The arthritis makes daily life difficult for Sarah as she often has joint stiffness in the morning and needs extra time to get moving.
All in all, there is no better way to give back to those adults and children with arthritis than to treat yourself, a friend, or a family member to a relaxing massage or facial during our Healing Hands for Arthritis event. All massages and facials will be offered at the introductory rate of $49 for a massage and $59 for a facial. For more information, or to book an appointment, call the Cranston clinic at 401-275-4900 or the East Greenwich clinic at 401-336-2900.
