The Walk to Cure Arthritis raises funds and awareness to fight the nation's leading cause of disability. We aren't just helping the millions of people who live with arthritis pain, we're funding research that's getting us closer to a cure.
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.
Let's raise funds to find a cure for arthritis, then come together to support each other and walk!
Join us at EMO’s Opening Day!
Monday, March 24th, 5:30am to 10:00am

Meet Our Junior Princess Honoree
Elin, a precious Pre-K student at Dee Mack Primary Junior High School was diagnosed with polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) at just 22 months old. The stiffness and pain in Elin’s left leg upon diagnosis caused that leg to be smaller due to her favoring the right leg as she learned to walk and climb. Physical therapy is helping Elin regain strength in her left leg.Read more about Elin's story
