TRC’s Team Kathy Story

For the 6th consecutive year TRC (Technical Rubber Company) is excited to be supporting the Arthritis Foundation’s annual “Jingle Bell Run” to raise awareness and funds for the research and treatment of this disabling disease.  TRC is once again a corporate sponsor and encourages it’s associates and family members, to join “Team Kathy” and run or walk in the Arthritis Foundation’s annual 5k “Jingle Bell Run”. 

Team Kathy was named in honor of Kathy Adams, the mother of CEO, Dan Layne. Kathy has been affected by arthritis for many years and continues to persevere including participating in this 5K event each year.

In Kathy’s honor, TRC is sponsoring “The Warrior Wall”. This wall is a living memorial to those who battle this disease every day, they are truly “Warriors”! The wall is a place where the Warrior’s along with their family and friends can post with a sharpie their sentiments, whether they be mantras, inspirational quotes or words of encouragement and support. This “Warrior Wall” will be displayed and available at all Arthritis Foundation events.

Over 50 Million people are impacted by arthritis.  And many people perceive arthritis to be a disease that comes with age, but that is not always the case.  Many children are impacted by arthritis, and “Kids can’t be kids” when they can’t walk or run.  And 100% of the money raised benefits the mission of the Arthritis Foundation.  Click here for a link to see both the celebration and the importance of the cause.
