Hotel in Williamsburg Virginia Staff Participates in Fundraiser Event

Residence Inn Williamsburg Staff Partake in Event to Benefit the Arthritis Foundation

WILLIAMSBURG, VA--(Marketwired - Dec 11, 2013) - The Williamsburg Warriors, a group of staff members from the Residence Inn & Spring Hill Suites by Marriott, a premier hotel near Jamestown VA, participated in the Jingle Bell Walk/Run event to benefit the Arthritis Foundation.

The event, which took place on November 16th, raised money for the Arthritis Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports the more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions.

Arthritis affects over 50 million Americans and is the leading cause of disability in the United States, yet it's often misunderstood. Many people don't realize that arthritis is not just a disease of old age. Two-thirds of people with arthritis are under the age of 65, including 300,000 children, according to the Arthritis Foundation. The Williamsburg Warriors participated in the walk to raise money and awareness for this cause.

This is the second charity event the Williamsburg Warriors participated in this year. Last spring, the staff walked in the MS Walk to benefit Multiple Sclerosis.
