Walk to Cure Arthritis, the Arthritis Foundation’s national signature event, began in the 1990s. It has drawn thousands of participants in scores of communities every spring, primarily in May, as well as in the fall in some locations. So far this event has raised more than $100 million to help end the barriers the 50+ million Americans who are affected by arthritis face, including 300,000 children and their families. Another step, another victory.
