Join Us in the Walk to Cure Arthritis, May 20

Did you know that arthritis is the #1 cause of disability in the United States, affecting more than 50 million people? Our friends at The Arthritis Foundation are committed to finding a cure for the millions of people who suffer from arthritis pain, including 300,000 children and their families.

We are absolutely thrilled to be the corporate chair sponsors at this year’s Walk to Cure Arthritis – Puget Sound on Saturday, May 20th! The Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s annual fundraising 5K event that rallies communities together and raises funds to conquer arthritis for good! Whether you have a family member or loved one who suffers from arthritis or are simply looking for a fun charity event, the Walk to Cure Arthritis is a great way to get moving in support of a worthy cause!

Join POA’s Walk to Cure Arthritis team and say “yes” to helping create a world where people don’t have to struggle to button their shirt, tie their shoe, pick up their child or grandchild or play with their friends. It’s up to us to help those with arthritis gain access to life-changing information and resources so they can better manage their disease and live full, healthy lives, plus accelerate the path to better treatments and eventually a cure through cutting-edge research.

This year, along with the 5k, attendees will enjoy the all-new Health Fair from 9 a.m. to noon: a free health-education event that brings the best and most innovative presentations, products and services to individuals living with arthritis, bone and joint issues and other chronic health conditions. You won’t want to miss the kids’ area with games and crafts, a “Waggers Welcome” area for dogs, refreshments and more!

We can’t wait to see you at Walk to Cure Arthritis this year – we invite you all to come together to register, fundraise and walk, all while having a great time; because we believe that another step equals another victory! If you aren’t able to join the POA team, we’d deeply appreciate your donation to help us reach our goal in the fight against arthritis.
