The current reigning 2015 Miss Teen Minnesota is Nicole Doyle of Lakeville. As Miss Teen Minnesota, Doyle speaks out on “Kids Get Arthritis Too” which is a juvenile arthritis education and awareness campaign.

“I didn’t know that kids could get arthritis.” Diagnosed at the age of 3, Nicole has heard those words countless times. Juvenile arthritis is an autoimmune disease that can rob children of a carefree, painless childhood. There is no known cause and no cure, which is why research, education and awareness are vital in the battle against this disease. For more information go to:
