Walk to Fight Arthritis
The Arthritis Foundation is seeking walkers to participate in the following Arthritis Walks:
Thursday, May 1 at Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. The walk is at 7 p.m. with check-in and pre-event festivities starting at 6 p.m.
Saturday May 10 at Coachman Park in Clearwater. The walk starts at 8:30 a.m. with check in and event festivities from 7:30 a.m.
The Arthritis Walk is the Arthritis Foundation's signature event that takes place in communities nationwide to raise funds and awareness to fight arthritis, one of the nation's leading causes of disability. It kicks off each May during National Arthritis Month.
The event features both a three-mile and one-mile course, with activities for the entire family. Participants walk in honor of a friend or family member with arthritis, while those with arthritis wear blue hats to signify their action in taking control of their condition. Pet owners are invited to bring their leashed dogs to walk with them at the event and participant in the special ARFF-ritis Walk
To participate in the Arthritis Walk, volunteer or to form a team, visit www.arthritis.org or call the Arthritis Foundation at 800-850-9455 or 813-968-7000.
