Saturday, May 13, 2017

 

Over 400 people from the Portland/Vancouver will support the Arthritis Foundation’s goal to cure the disease and help people with it live a full life by taking part in the Walk to Cure Arthritis. 

The walk will take place on Saturday, May 20 at Esther Short Park in Vancouver. 

“Arthritis is more than just a few minor aches and pains. It’s a debilitating disease that robs people of their dreams. When you support Walk to Cure Arthritis, you become a Champion of Yes, helping us build a lifetime of better, while accelerating the search for a cure. Whether you are close to the disease or simply looking for an inspiring charity event that truly makes a difference, Walk to Cure Arthritis provides people the opportunity to experience the power of standing together and giving back to the community. Together, participants can help us reach our goal of raising $55,000,” said Senior Development Director Kim Lowry.
