2014 Cedar Rapids Walk to Cure Arthritis


Saturday, June 7th

Veteran's Memorial Stadium

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 walk around the inside of the Baseball field, 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!

For more information on how to qualify for our 2014 Walk to Cure Arthritis fundraising incentives, please contact your Walk to Cure Arthritis event director listed below.

Meet Our Youth Honoree
Liam Wessels


Liam was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) just after his second birthday. One morning Liam woke up with a limp and swollen knee and made a visit to his doctor later that day. He was hospitalized, at which time his knee was drained and testing began for things like bacterial joint infections and Lyme’s disease. When such tests came back negative, he was sent home with hopes that a viral infection had attacked the joint. Soon after his hospital release, his parents noticed a swollen ankle and Liam was referred to a pediatric rheumatologist.
