We just started volunteering with the Program on the Saponi Stickball, keeping the youth moving. I would like to say thank you for doing this teaching and healing the culture. We need this in the community

I am a firm believer that things we do in our formative years, and in our early adulthood, we compound injuries by being reinjured time and time again. If you live a physical life like I did in the US Army, followed by a career as a policeman, you'll find yourself where I am at 59. I see that arthritis has set in and you attempt to conquer it.
Unfortunately this is not the same for children who have early onset arthritis. I cant imagine having to deal with this disease as a kid. Kids are supposed to be resilient and should be able to rebound from everything in their lives. So I ask that all who read this, understand, that this group requires support.

There were several programs that helped us in the community, Being of Native American heritage, we are pre-disposed to some of the illnesses, and we didn't know why.
