2014 Myositis Awareness T-shirts
We are very excited to have group t-shirts available to show your support of Myositis Colorado and myositis patients! Thanks to our group member, Shelly DeLaCruz, for creating the winning design from our t-shirt design contest!
$15 for one t-shirt, $25 for two shirts. Available in Adult M, L, XL (or contact us for additional sizes ie: plus, junior, child)
2014 Coin Fundraiser
To grow a group fund we are asking for your spare change. Ask your friends, neighbors, or Denver panhandlers if they’d give you their extra quarters, dimes, nickels or pennies to support your Myositis Group! Start your own coin jar at home for loose pocket change, and then drop off collected coins to any of our 2014 meetings.
We have also started a group checking account to accept dollar donations. Make your check payable to Myositis Colorado and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for mailing address.
Bonus! For every $5 donated through August 2nd you will get ONE entry into our September 21st Picnic in the Park Raffle! Click here for full details.
