Walking for Arthritis

The Arthritis Foundation holds fundraising walks all across the country. This year’s Central Massachusetts walk will take place on Sunday, September 11th. Please visit the website for more information.

The Arthritis Walk® is the signature fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation. It’s not just an event,
it’s a celebration of year-round movement to help prevent and treat arthritis.

Every year we get together to celebrate movement and make a positive impact on the lives of people living with arthritis by raising funds for
arthritis research, education and life improvement programs in 250 communities
across the country.

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.

Our rallying cry, Let’s Move
Together®
encourages people to get up and get
moving. When you join us at the Arthritis Walk®,
you’re not moving alone-you are becoming part of a community looking to achieve
better health and change lives at the same time. We hope to see you
there!
