15th Annual Fight for a Cure Mega Raffle & Wiffle ball event to benefit Juvenile Arthritis

August 19 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Rescheduled due to rain. My name is Edd Pedro and my daughter Kelsey was diagnosed with JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) at the age of 3. Thanks to the miracle of modern medicine, her JRA is under control. As a result, we have been giving back to the Arthritis Foundation to help them fight for a cure for everyone with Arthritis. I am holding the 15th annual Edd Pedro’s Fight for a Cure Wiffle ball Tournament and Mega Raffle on August 12 at Slater Park in Pawtucket, Rhode Island 02861.
