Arthritis affects all of us.
There is a group of people in Fredericksburg, Virginia doing something about it. The 4th annual Fredericksburg Arthritis Walk was held on May 5, 2007. I had the privilege of being the Chair of this event for the 2nd year in a row.
What did the planning committee, team captains, volunteers and participants accomplish? All of our goals were exceeded!
- Over $45,000 was raised for the Arthritis Foundation (60% increase from 2006)
- Over 350 people participated in the event (75% increase from 2006)
- Several participants signed up to be Arthritis Advocates
