Dear Friends,

I am again participating on Team Hopkins Kids at this year's Baltimore Running Festival. I appreciate any support as I run to raise money for patients receiving treatment at Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

I run specifically for the children cared for by the Division of Pediatric Endocrine, especially my patients in the Pediatric Bone Health Clinic. All endocrine hormones target the skeleton, promoting bone growth and strength. Having a strong skeleton is the basis for mobility and freedom.

October 20th, 2019 is World Osteoporosis Day. As my patients will attest, osteoporosis is not just a disease of old age and is particularly disheartening when it occurs in children. Weight bearing exercise is a great way to build strong bones. In honoring the advise I give to the children in the Pediatric Bone Health Clinic, I will be doing load-bearing exercise to build strong bones, in the form of a 5K.

All contributions to Team Hopkins Kids will help provide care, comfort, research funds, and support for more than 100,000 patients seen in the Children's Center each year. Specific contributions to Unbreakable Spirit will go towards improving the care and life of the 3,700 children seen by Pediatric Endocrinology. Donations will help increase our educational and research efforts on endocrine hormones and effects on pediatric bone health.

This cause is very dear to me, and I appreciate all the support I can get!
Please help me spread the word about osteoporosis in children, using the hashtag #Thatsosteoporosis and sharing this page!

Together we can make a difference!

Best -
Janet (AKA Dr. Crane)
