Join us on Saturday, June 24th and run or walk for a great cause! All proceeds will benefit RSDA, an organization devoted to supporting RSD/CRPS patients and their families, raising awareness of the illness, and supporting research for treatments.
CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) is “a progressive disease of the Autonomic Nervous System, and more specifically, the Sympathetic Nervous System. The pain is characterized as constant, extremely intense, and out of proportion to the original injury. The pain is typically accompanied by swelling, skin changes, extreme sensitivity, and can often be debilitating. It usually affects one or more of the four limbs but can occur in any part of the body and in over 70% of the victims it spreads to additional areas.” (www.rsdhope.org)
