1 in 3 Floridians is impacted by one or more of the 100+ types of arthritis. The one nearest to our hearts is Juvenile Arthritis, a disease we know to well as it affects Willa Ambrosius, the daughter our Baymeadows Store General Manager.
We chose the Arthritis Foundation of Florida as our Native Sun GreenApples Charity of the Month in her honor and hope to both raise funds for children’s programs and remind people that Kids Get Arthritis Too!
The mission of the Arthritis Foundation is Research, Public Health and Public Policy. Their work has improved thousands of lives through programs, services, information and referral, as well as professional and patient education. They’ve also funded and sponsored research for over 50 years resulting in major treatment advances for many forms of arthritis.
The Florida Chapter receives no government funding and relies solely upon voluntary contributions from the public. Thank you for your support!
