Tucker Helps Justin Morneau Knock Juvenile Arthritis Out of the Park

6.8.11

Justin Morneau, in conjunction with the Minnesota Twins and the Arthritis Foundation Upper Midwest Region, will host the third annual Justin Morneau’s Casino Night. This event will take place Sunday, June 12 from 6 – 10 p.m. at International Market Square.

Tickets to the event are sold out but you can get in on the action through the online auction. The auction includes items ranging from gift certificates to professional sports memorabilia. One featured item is a custom autographed Monster Energy race pullover from Minnesota’s Pro Snocross and Motocross athlete Tucker Hibbert.

Hibbert stated, “I’ve been riding snowmobiles and motorcycles since I could walk so my joints have taken a beating. I made the choice to be a racer and deal with pain but kids don’t choose to have juvenile arthritis. My hope is that through events like Justin’s Casino Night and the constant work of the Arthritis Foundation, kids struggling with arthritis can have the opportunity to live pain free and be active.”

The online auction closes Saturday, June 11. Funds raised support educational and therapeutic programs for children and adults living with arthritis including a family support group, newsletters, and scholarships for Camp M.A.S.H. (Make Arthritis Stop Hurting) and the Juvenile Arthritis Conference.
