Texas Arthritis News
The Arthritis Foundation is more than proud to announce that legendary University of Texas and NFL Hall of Fame running back Earl Campbell is the 2014 Official Hero of the Texas Walk to Cure Arthritis Series. In his new role, the Texas legend will lend his support to the Arthritis Foundation’s statewide signature fundraising events in Austin (4/26), D/FW (5/3), Houston (5/3) and San Antonio (5/17). Throughout his football career, Campbell was known for his ability to sustain a hit. And while this led to amazing success, the punishment his body received on the football field ultimately took its toll. Since retiring from football in 1985, Campbell has suffered from severe osteoarthritis in his knees, feet and back. He’s gone through more surgeries than he can count, including two knee replacements. But he’s happy to report these days he isn’t sidelined by arthritis. Thanks to new medications and regular work outs in the UT weight room, Campbell has ditched his wheel chair and today is thankful for greater mobility. To ensure that no one is limited by arthritis, Campbell has joined forces with the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk to Cure Arthritis and formed EARL’S DREAM TEAM. read more
