Arthritis sucks, and its not just for your parents and old people. Young kids get it too. The photo above is of 12-year-old Savannah, the daughter of a former CBGB employee of 18 years with Hilly Kristal at the CBGB's farewell party in 2006. Savannah suffers from a form of juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
Each year The Arthritis Foundation holds a walk to help raise money and awarness for the disease. Savannah is one of the honorees in this year's walk in New York City. If you would like to participate, the walk is happening on Sunday, April 27 in Battery Park. Even better, if you would like to donate to the Arthritis Walk in Savannah's name, you can do so by going to this website. You don't even have to walk to donate and help out a great cause.
