Arthritis Walk 2011

Hey friends!! How are you??? This is going to be a quick post because I want to share something really important with you. A friend of our family is suffering from arthritis and it’s a cause that’s definitely worth supporting. There will be a walk for the cause tomorrow! I wont be able to be there because I am working, but I’m hoping that any of you who live in the LA area would participate!!!

Event Information

Event Info:
The Arthritis Walk® is the Arthritis Foundation’s annual nationwide signature event that raises funds and awareness to fight arthritis, the nation’s most common cause of disability.

The Arthritis Walk® kicks off in May during National Arthritis Month in more than 250 communities nationwide to fund arthritis research, health education and government advocacy initiatives.

Participants walk in honor of a friend or family member with arthritis. People with arthritis wear blue hats to signify their action in taking control of their condition. The event features a three- mile and one-mile course, with arthritis information and activities for the entire family. In many communities, pet owners are invited to bring their dogs along for the event.

By joining your 2011 Arthritis Walk®, you become a part of the Let’s Move Together, a nationwide movement that encourages people to move to prevent or treat arthritis. Start moving today for better health!
