Riding to Cure Arthritis from New York to Oklahoma
Date:6/20/2012

Perrysburg, NY (PRWEB) June 20, 2012

Jean Flagler, 60, will be riding her Harley-Davidson motorcycle from Perrysburg, NY to Oklahoma City, OK beginning June 22nd to raise funds and awareness for arthritis research. Flagler, who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, is an equestrian coach and must be in Oklahoma City by June 27th to coach some of her students qualified to compete in the National IEA Western Riding Competition.

Jean’s ride is part of the Racing For A Cure program run by the Arthritis National Research Foundation. Jean is particularly close to the Arthritis National Research Foundation’s mission to cure arthritis. When asked why she chooses to support the Arthritis National Research Foundation she said, “About three years ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I am one of those people who tests false negative for it, so it has been a lengthy process to find out what was wrong with me. And, although rheumatoid arthritis research is important to me personally, I support ANRF’s efforts to cure all kinds of arthritis research. They are working toward cures for other autoimmune diseases such as Lupus and Crohn’s Diseases, which my son, Brian, is afflicted with.” Her personal and family connection drives her passion to help raise funds and awareness for one of America’s top charities.

The Arthritis National Research Foundation has earned the highest, four-star rating from Charity Navigator for four consecutive years and consistently places 91 cents of every dollar into research programs.

Flagler’s ride from Perrysburg to Oklahoma City is approximately 1,300 miles. She is riding to support the estimated 50 million Americans who suffer the pain of debilitating arthritis. She hopes to be an example to other arthritis sufferers that they can do anything they put their minds to and that research is the key to finding a cure for these diseases.

On her journey, Flagler’s husband, SMA (Ret.) Dale Flagler, will support her by following her in their truck and trailer, making sure she gets enough to drink, eat and rest! She says, “Hey, at age 60 we all need a little more support!”
