Nashville Arthritis Walk

Kelly Stasiunas • Reader Submitted • April 21, 2008

The Arthritis Walk
- is the Arthritis Foundation's annual nationwide event that raises awareness and funds to fight arthritis, the nation's leading cause of disability. It is a tremendous opportunity to help improve the lives of the 46 million men, women and children doctor-diagnosed with arthritis. Get your company involved or recruit friends and family members to form a team. Best of all, walk in honor of a loved one with arthritis and know you're making a difference by raising funds to support Arthritis Foundation research, public health and public policy efforts to improve the lives of people with arthritis.

At the Event?

- Choose from a three-mile or one-mile walk route.

- Write an inspirational message on the Wall of Heroes.

- Wear a blue "hero" hat if you have arthritis.

- Enjoy the fun, festivities and free health information.
