Run for The Painted Turtle!

LA 5K 3.16.13 003On Saturday March 8 and Sunday March 9 we will be running, walking and wheeling with The Painted Turtle family members and campers, like Shoshie. Shoshie is a nine year old camper with Juvenile Arthritis and has been attending The Painted Turtle for 2 years. She will be joining the team for the second year in a row. Come join her!

“I love running the LA 5K. Everyone can do it, whether you run, walk, skip or are pushed in a wheelchair, like I did last year, until the end when I found the strength to run. I love running because it’s fun, and exercise is great”
