Welcome to Rhode Island
There are more than 50 million Americans with Arthritis - 227,000 of them live in Rhode Island. The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. We are focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis through vital information, advocacy, science and community. Our goal is to chart a winning course, guiding families in developing personalized plans for saying yes – day after day.
The Walk to Cure Arthritis raises funds and awareness to fight the nation's leading cause of disability. We aren't just helping the millions of people who live with arthritis pain, we're funding research that's getting us closer to a cure.
Please join us on August 11 for Edd Pedro’s 16th Annual “Fight for a Cure” Wiffle Ball Tournament to be held at Slater Park, Pawtucket. Edd Pedro is a resident of Pawtucket, a JA Dad and has been instrumental in organizing this event to bring greater awareness of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis to the public, with proceeds benefiting the Arthritis Foundation.
The evening will consist of cocktail reception, silent auction, sit-down dinner, entertainment and networking with medical, corporate leaders and friends of the Arthritis Foundation.
