Hello and Welcome to Team GRIFFIN!

We are Brianna and Kevin Zarins, Mom and Dad to a CRMO Warrior, Griffin. Our sweet and sassy middle son was officially diagnosed with a disease called Chronic Recurring Multifocal Osteomyelitis (CRMO).
Itís a very rare bone disease affecting only 1 in every 1 million people. The average age of onset is 10 years old. Our son is only 5, and started showing signs at just 4 years old. What started as complaints of pain and then a limp, turned out to be a heartbreaking condition. The diagnosis came after many blood tests, x-rays and surgery for a bone biopsy. #CRMO is a disease where the body attacks the bones causing inflammation.
The exact cause is unknown and there is no cure. Griffin has begun treatment but the path to remission is unknown at this time.
The San Diego CRMO awareness 5k is happening on Sunday October 3rd, 2021 from 10am-Noon. We would like to invite our family, friends and supporters to participate by walking, running, biking, skipping, wheeling, or rolling at least 3.1 miles to raise awareness and show support for our son Griffin and all those suffering with CRMO. You are welcome to join us on 10/3, walk on your own or make a donation to Team GRIFFIN. Please contact me directly for more details on how to join the walk on 10/3. If you would like to donate, please use the button below. We sincerely appreciate you love and support, no matter what form that comes in.
