• Thursday: Cookie Decorating at Hodson

• Friday: Joints in Motion Yoga Session at the Egg from 4:30- 6:00

• Saturday: AOlympics at the Green starting at 10:30

AOII’s philanthropy chairs, Pria Dutt and Valerie Fischer, discussed the importance of awareness was towards juvenile arthritis, “Juvenile Arthritis is not commonly recognized or thought about, making our efforts that much more vital. Blue Week is a tradition we bring to campus to get all of Washington College involved in raising funds and awareness for Juvenile Arthritis in a fun and interactive way!” AOII’s Blue Week proceeds goes towards the Arthritis Foundation Fund, researching for better treatments and possibly a cure one day!
