Nearly 46 million people have been diagnosed with arthritis in the the US. A walk this weekend will raise awareness and funds to help those suffering from the disease.

There are more than 100 forms of arthritis and nearly 300,000 children under the age of 18 have been diagnosed with the disease. This weekend the Arthritis Foundation is holding an arthritis walk, zombie 5K fun run and kids’ monster dash half mile to help raise money for those suffering. The goal this year is $17,000 which will also help with arthritis research, education and programs for better living. The event will take place at Choice Health and Fitness and you can still register at the event.
