Join us in Bridgton, Maine on August 6th for the 4th Walking Toward a Pain Free Future Event to raise awareness for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. RSD/CRPS is a chronic neurological pain syndrome. Although you probably have not heard of RSD/CRPS, many people live with this debilitating condition everyday. The hope is to spread awareness, and raise funds for two organizations who help out RSD/CRPS patients. The two organizations are The Coalition Against Pediatric Pain and the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association (RSDSA). Both TCAPP and RSDSA are very active organizations that work with patients, educate physicians and other medical personnel, as well as research for new treatments.
The day will include a short walk through downtown Bridgton, a bake sale, raffle and plenty of time to learn more about RSD/CRPS! We hope you will join us!
The bake sale will start at 9 am in front of Oberg Agency on Main Street and then raffle, celebration, butterfly release and walk will start from the Bridgton Community Center at 15 Depot Street. The raffle will be set up at 10 am, the drawing will be at 10:45, the butterfly release at the Bob Dunning Bridge at 11 am and the walk starting after that at 11:15 am.
For the second year the event is in going to be held in honor and memory of Lauren Georgia Reilly who is now flying high and pain free after a long battle with RSD/CRPS and many related health problems. Come out to support her memory to raise awareness, and to fight for a cure.
