Midwestern University will host the Let's Move Together Arthritis Walk at 9:00 AM on Saturday, September 24, 2011 on the Downers Grove Campus, 555 31st Street.
The Arthritis Walk is the Arthritis Foundation's annual nationwide event that raises funds and awareness to fight arthritis, the nation's leading cause of disability. Chances are most people are connected in some way to someone with arthritis and this event aims to deliver the message of good health and movement to everyone - not just to those with arthritis.|
Whether you form a team, support fundraising efforts, or sign on to volunteer, you can help to support arthritis research, health education, and government advocacy initiatives.
The event features a three-mile and one-mile course, with arthritis information and activities including a kids zone, student corner, yoga lessons, food, and raffle prizes. For more information, please call 312.880.4735 or visit http://downersgrovearthritiswalk.kintera.org.
