The Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide signature event that unites communities across the country to put an end to arthritis. With your donation, we change lives by helping people gain access to the critical medications necessary to live full, healthy lives and funding research that provides better treatments today and promises a cure for tomorrow. The event features a three-mile and one-mile course, with arthritis information and activities for the entire family. Pet owners are encouraged to bring their dogs.
Our Goal is $550,000 Each year we ask Los Angeles to join us in our quest to raise money to find a cure for Arthritis. The mission is simple: share your story about why you are participating in the Walk to Cure Arthritis and ask for support. Your story can be about a friend or loved one's battle with arthritis, or it can be about your own battle with arthritis. Each story helps to raise awareness about arthritis and of course the much needed funding toward finding a cure. Our goal is $550,000 and with your help we can make it!
How Your Fundraising Helps Because of your participation in the Walk to Cure Arthritis, many lives have changed for the better due to the funds raised in our community. We feel it is important for you to know how The Pacific Region of the Arthritis Foundation (of which Los Angeles is a part) spends the money you work so hard to raise. A few great accomplishments to celebrate this year:
• $660,000 on important research into finding a cure for arthritis • Several Juvenile Arthritis Fellowships funded • 600 children diagnosed with arthritis given scholarships to attend juvenile arthritis camp • 29 families (90 people) given scholarships to attend the National Juvenile Arthritis Conference in Keystone Colorado with a further 195 people benfiting from the learing and networking experience of the National JA Conference As you can see, much of the support raised by the Walk to Cure Arthritis stays in the community
We Are Here to Help! The easiest way to raise money is to share your story about why you are participating in the Walk to Cure Arthritis. This website allows you to create a personal fundraising page from where you can email all of your friends and family in one shot. You can also personalize your page with a picture or a video. We can help with all of that.
