Help RCSC Trainer Raise NMO Awareness

 In Blog, RCSC News

Craig-200x300Today’s Post comes from Rock Creek Sports Club Trainer Craig Klein.

You ever notice that people care more about you than you care for yourself? I feel it and see it each and every day, but it is a struggle to accept.

I have NMO (neuromyelitis optica), an incurable autoimmune disease. This is a recent diagnosis that will remain raw for some time, but a sense of debt and enormous gratitude drive me to focus on raising awareness and organizing a charity event with Rock Creek Sports Club.

The “Guthy-Jackson Foundation” (http://www.guthyjacksonfoundation.org/) has been a resource for myself and friends. I haven’t met another person with NMO or their primary caregiver, but I will.

From June 18-21, I will raise awareness and share information on NMO through Rock Creek Sports Club’s generous support. Fitness Classes, bake sales and educational material will all be available. All proceeds will go to “Guthy-Jackson Foundation” with specific times to follow – so stay tuned.

The best compliment you can offer me is to learn more, ask questions.

    I am personal trainer and small business owner. I was recently diagnosed with NMO. It is incredible to see a trainer (such as myself) has NMO. I look forward to showing up and spreading awareness.
