Get Fit and Support the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation

The Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation is seeking participants for its 2012 Team Sjögren’s:  a training program to help prepare and support team members to run a marathon (26.2 miles) or half-marathon (13.1 miles). This year’s team will run in the 2012 Country Music Marathon and Half-Marathon in Nashville, Tennessee, on April 28, 2012.

Team members raise awareness and funds for the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation and receive professional coaching and support to prepare them for participation in the marathon or half-marathon, either walking or running. Last year’s Team Sjögren’s had 24 members raising over $70,000 for the fight against Sjögren’s. You can learn more about the 2012 participants signed up so far and support this year’s team by visiting their fundraising webpages.

This is a great cause for making that New Year’s resolution to get off the couch, get active, and make a real difference in the lives of Sjögren’s patients and families. Let’s help them increase the numbers of participants and funds raised in 2012.
