Support for Juvenile Arthritis

Eight-year-old Evelyn Whittemore and her mother, Jennifer Whittemore, spoke to Jonna Friday about how Evelyn's dealing with Juvenile Arthritis. The Sackville native was diagnosed four years ago and although she still participates in many activities, the disease makes things difficult for her. That's why friends and supporters raised more than $2,000 on her behalf to support the Jingle Bell Walk and Run for the Arthritis Society at Centennial Rotary Lodge in Moncton on Sunday. Registration starts at half-past noon.
