Walking to Help Those in Pain

SCRANTON — The RSD Walk was held at McDade Park on Sunday afternoon.

RSD stands for Reflex Sympathy Dystrophy which is a neurological inflammatory pain disorder that affects many people.

The event included a car show, raffles, and music, and was held in order to get the word out about the disease and to raise money for research.

Organizers said this is the 11th year for the RSD walk and more than $75,000 has been raised since it started.

“Nobody knew about RSD. Doctors, nurses, nobody, and I says I have to do something because I’m in that latter stage,” said Joann Spalnick of Jermyn.

Newswatch 16’s Julie Sidoni took part in Sunday’s RSD walk, as well.
