Middletown, N.Y. – May 29, 2014 – Physicians and staff of Crystal Run Healthcare came together to fundraise for the 2014 Hudson Valley Walk to Cure Arthritis held on May 3rd at Thomas Bull Memorial Park. Eleven employee teams raised a total of $14,208 in donations to benefit the Walk. Including Crystal Run Healthcare’s corporate sponsorship, a grand total of $19,208 was donated to the New York Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation, benefactor of the Walk to Cure Arthritis. The Funds raised support the Arthritis Foundation’s mission and their focus on three main areas including medical research, community education programs, and patient advocacy initiatives.

Crystal Run’s top three fund raising teams were Sami’s Arthritis Trapp, co-captained by 2014 Medical Honoree, Dr. Kevin Trapp, and Crystal Run radiology technologist, Cynthia Clemmons, Team Talk captained by HIM associate, Rachel Kashan, and team Arthritis Warriors captained by Physician Assistant, Jennifer Thornell.

Dr. Kevin Trapp, Crystal Run Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in joint replacement and reconstruction, served as the 2014 Medical Honoree for the Walk to Cure Arthritis. “ I have been a proponent and participant in the Arthritis Foundation and this walk since its inception here in Orange County. I was so honored to serve as the Medical Honoree, but the true honorees are Sharon Mitchell, Adult Honoree, Gina Marie D’Auria, Young Adult Honoree, and Lucas Pelfrey, Youth Honoree. I am humbled to be included in their company,” said Dr. Trapp.

Crystal Run Healthcare has been a corporate sponsor of the Hudson Valley Arthritis walk since 2006. Each year, in addition to Crystal Run’s corporate donation, employees from Crystal Run Healthcare form teams to raise awareness and funds to help fund vital research to find a cure for arthritis, the nation’s most common cause of disability.
