PATTERSON HEIGHTS -- An 8-year-old borough girl was one of 50 western Pennsylvania volunteers honored with a Jefferson Award for her efforts in raising arthritis awareness and funds to fight for a cure.
Three years ago, Mariah Aquino-Truss of Patterson Heights was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis that causes symptoms such as joint swelling, pain and stiffness.
Since her diagnosis, Mariah has hosted an annual event -- Mariah's Movers Carnival -- at Bradys Run Park, donating proceeds to the Arthritis Foundation of Pittsburgh. In three years, the event has raised more than $6,000.
In 2012, she was the child honoree for the Pittsburgh Walk to Cure Arthritis and last year was honored at the walk for her work in seeking a cure.
Mariah donates an average of 10 hours a month volunteering for the Arthritis Foundation, and frequently educates her peers at school assemblies and others.
The Jefferson Awards were established in 1972 by the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Sen. Robert Taft Jr. and Sam Beard. Locally, the awards are supported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Highmark and BNY Mellon.
An awards ceremony will be held next spring. Winners receive a bronze medallion. One recipient will be named Pittsburgh's Most Outstanding Volunteer and will represent the region at a national awards ceremony next June. This article can be viewed in the Beaver County Times, October 14, 2014.
Thank you for your participation.
