2009 Upstate, SC Arthritis Walk

October 25, 2009

The Arthritis Walk is a fun-filled nationwide fundraiser event benefitting the Arthritis Foundation. Thousands of teams across the country join together and walk to help prevent, control and cure arthritis. Anyone can be part of a team - co-workers, friends, family,people with arthritis, etc. Let's Move Together to make a difference!

This is the first year that the Arthritis Foundation has scheduled a walk in the Upstate. In South Carolina, 30% of women are affected by arthritis and approximately 60% of the senior population over the age of 65 suffers from some form of arthritis. Many children are diagnosed at an early age with juvenile arthritis as well.
