Art for Arthritis
Most people don’t think about children having arthritis but more than 3,000 children in the Kansas City Metro area have some form of this painful disease. Our Art for Arthritis event teams as many as 20 local children affected by juvenile arthritis with area artists to spend a summer together creating unique pieces of artwork. The art is then auctioned off at the Art for Arthritis event in order to raise money for nationwide arthritis research, as well as local programs and services.
The Arthritis Walk® is the Arthritis Foundation’s annual nationwide event that raises awareness and funds to fight arthritis, the nation’s most common cause of disability.
