The 2012 Arthritis Walk – Atlanta will be
held on Saturday, May 5th at Concourse Office Park. 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. The event kicks
off each May during National Arthritis Month and continues through the summer and
into the fall.
Walk Atlanta features a three-mile and one-mile course beginning at 10:00AM
followed by a celebration and activities for the entire family that will wrap
up around 12:00PM. Participants walk in
honor of friends and family members with arthritis, create team t-shirts, bring
their dogs (who get arthritis too!) and engage in the many activities and
entertainment at the event. The event
gives special recognition to those with arthritis, as wear blue hats to signify
their action in taking control of their condition.
