Help Hank Aaron in his Fight Against Arthritis

Braves fans have an opportunity to help Hank Aaron raise money for the Arthritis foundataion, and all you have to do is join his Facebook page. First, here is a little back story:

Homerun king Hank Aaron struggled with osteoarthritis knee pain for many years after retiring in 1976. However, he has recently worked with his doctor to fight arthritis, and is now back on his feet with a story to tell.

Hank has decided to team up with Genzyme and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Nick DiNubile to encourage the 10 million Americans dealing with osteoarthritis knee pain to talk to their doctor about treatment options, stop suffering and get back in the game. To show that he is truly "Back in the Game," Hank will participate in the Arthritis Walk on May 22, 2010 in Atlanta.

Go to the TeamHank website at teamhank.com and click "Become a Fan." That will take you to Facebook where you can officially become a fan of his Facebook page, and in doing so help contribute to raising money for the Arthritis foundation. A dollar will be donated by the sponsor for every fan who joins.

Let's show them how Talking Chop supports our baseball heroes. Everyone with a Facebook page, head over to TeamHank.com and join-up. And remember...
