Advocacy

Last year, more than 200 youth across the state and NC military installations did Our Nationwide Outreach and Focusing on Military Families programs with Support Our Arthritic Kids, Inc. Increasing awareness to help children, parents and communities in need all over the North Carolina. 


This year we are hoping youth across North Carolina, Virginia, and Native American communities in the US will be taking part in our outreach programs to inform them about Juvenile Arthritis.  This year in 2016, we have developed two new programs, Advocacy, and Native American Outreach. 


The success of this event is credited largely to our sponsors, who lend their names and financial support to the event. The money we raise each year goes to 20% towards auto-immune research, 20% towards scholarships, 40% towards programs and other activities and 20% supported management, administrative, and fundraising costs, and this year’s overall goal is $150,000 dollars.
