I love the arthritis walks for two simple reasons. The walks raise money for the Arthritis Foundation and awareness for arthritis-related diseases — two very important things.
It’s time to start building teams and raising money for your city’s arthritis walk! Start early and stay dedicated to your cause. Your local Arthritis Foundation branch will appreciate your efforts!
Local Plug: If you live in Los Angeles, like me, there is a good possibility that you could hit two walks. There will be one on May 3 at Magic Mountain and one on June 7 in Santa Monica Beach. If you live in LA, join our Facebook Group for the Magic Mountain walk in Valencia, CA. Start a team and we’ll see you at the theme park on May 3!
So … what are you waiting for. Here’s your chance to get involved and make an impact!
Three Easy Steps to Get Started
- Find a walk in your area by going to letsmovetogether.org.
- Start a team and invite your friends to join you.
- Raise money.
Over the course of the next few months, I’ll be offering fundraising tips and ideas, so check back often. If you have tips of your own to offer, leave them in the comments or email me.
Shameless Plug: Buy one of our fun, ArthritisFriend.com tees and wear it proudly at your local walk!
Let’s get moving!
