We here at Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk love to support our local community, especially the causes close to our customers’ hearts. When our long-time customer and friend Renay Houle came to us about supporting the Arthritis Foundation we were happy to say “Yes!” Renay herself has had rheumatoid arthritis for 38 years, and has been an active volunteer at the Arthritis Foundation for more than two decades.
Renay helped educate us on the disease of arthritis. She taught us that arthritis affects many people, not just the elderly, and is the number one cause of disability in the country. The disease includes over one hundred different conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, Lyme arthritis, lupus, and osteoarthritis.
Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk will be sponsoring the Arthritis Foundation’s Better Living With Arthritis Expo this Saturday, October 25th, 2014. This all-day event includes exhibits, screenings, and keynote speakers. The mission of the Expo is to raise awareness, educate, connect, and share experience and hope. “We want people to be aware of the resources available so they can take action,” says Rebecca Farnlof, Associate Vice President of Public Health & Advocacy for the Arthritis Foundation, “It’s an interactive event where people can meet up, learn, and have fun!”
“We’re a non-profit,” Rebecca adds, “so [the Arthritis Expo] helps the community, and our sponsors are a key part of that. Every sponsor is an important piece of the puzzle so we can make it available free of charge, to people who can benefit from the information and resources we have to offer.” Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk is thrilled to be a part of supporting this cause and this event. The Expo takes place at the Radisson Airport Hotel in Warwick, RI. Registration is at 9:00 am, and events start at 10:00 am and run until 1:15 pm.
