Orlando will Walk to Cure Arthritis in May
Arthritis Foundation’s Orlando Walk to Cure Arthritis Raises Funds for a Cure
Orlando, Florida – May 14th, 2022 – Over 400 walkers will be on hand at the 2022 Walk to Cure Arthritis on May 14th at Avalon Park in Orlando to help support the Arthritis Foundation and its mission to cure arthritis and make it easier for people living with the disease to achieve everyday victories. Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide signature event that unites communities across the country to put an end to arthritis. We aren’t just helping millions of people with arthritis to live better; we are charting the course to a cure.
In the United States alone, nearly 60 million adults and 300,000 children live with arthritis. It is a leading cause of work disability, with annual costs for medical care and lost earnings of $303.5 billion. Arthritis affects one in four Americans and causes more activity limitation than heart disease, cancer or diabetes. The Orlando Walk to Cure Arthritis will help those living with arthritis by supporting programs, research and advocacy initiatives as well as fund crucial research aimed at finding a cure for the disease.
“Arthritis is more than just a few minor aches and pains. It’s a debilitating disease that robs people of their dreams,” says Avalon Park Group President and CEO Mr. Beat Kahli, who is proudly serving as the 2022 Corporate Chair. “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 is a great way to experience the power of standing together and giving back to the community. Together, Orlando can Walk to Cure Arthritis and help us reach our goal of raising $32,000 to help find a cure for this disease.”
The Walk to Cure Arthritis is nationally presented by Horizon.
