Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide signature event supporting our mission to conquer arthritis by spreading awareness and raising money for research aimed at finding a cure. Whether you are close to the disease or simply looking for an inspiring charity event, Walk to Cure Arthritis is a great way to experience the power of standing together and giving back to the community. The event features a three-mile and one-mile course, with arthritis information and activities for the entire family. Pet owners are encouraged to bring their dogs. Let's raise funds to find a cure for arthritis, then come together to support each other and walk! Every step counts, every dollar matters! - See more at: http://www.walktocurearthritis.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1145728#sthash.9UXeWHjv.dpuf
