The Arthritis Foundation, North Texas, will host the Let’s Move Together Dallas Arthritis Walk at 10 a.m., May 19, in Dallas. The Arthritis Walk is the signature fundraiser helping to bring awareness to their efforts in fighting arthritis and the disability it causes. Registration is free and begins at 8:30 a.m.
The walk includes routes of either one or three miles, food booths, a family activity area, educational health fairs and entertainment. 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. More than 1,200 walkers and Arthritis Foundation supporters are expected to attend the event, and pet owners are invited to bring their dogs along for the walk.
Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the United States, affecting 4.1 million people in Texas, including over 25,000 children. It is predicted that nationally there will be 67 million adults with arthritis by the year 2030.
