The TARC Heels showed true Tar Heel spirit on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at the Arthritis Foundation Triangle Walk. Wearing Carolina Blue, the team of over 60 people walked and raised over $4000 to benefit the Arthritis Foundation research programs.
Many thanks to Fran Spivack and Tony Russo (along with Bubbles and Jerzee) for setting up and working the Thurston table. Many people stopped by to pick up information about the Center.
At last count over 600 people walked and donated over $61,000. The day was gray and windy, but spirits were high as the walkers were treated to entertainment and raffle prizes. Dr. Adam Dore, a rheumatology fellow at Thurston, took home a gift certificate.
