Wear a holiday-themed costume. Tie jingle bells to your shoelaces. Show off your ugly Christmas sweater. Complete a 5-kilometer run or walk with your team members, spreading smiles, good cheer and a winning spirit … and be a Champion of Yes!
The Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide signature event that unites communities across the country to put an end to arthritis. With your donation, we change lives by helping people gain access to the critical medications necessary to live full, healthy lives and funding research that provides better treatments today and promises a cure for tomorrow.
On Saturday, October 1, 2016 at the Drake Hotel, the Arthritis Foundation will honor Mark Kaufman, MS, PT, ATC, President and CEO of Athletico Physical Therapy with their Annual Freedom of Movement Award, recognizing his career accomplishments and dedication addressing the needs of arthritis patients and caregivers.
