Weekend walk to benefit Arthritis Foundation

Weekend walk to benefit Arthritis Foundation

ATLANTA -- Many may not know the arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States.

About 50 million Americans, including one in four Georgians, are affected by this disease. According to some statistics, 74 percent of Georgians with arthritis are overweight or obese; nearly half of them are limited by it.

On Saturday, May 14, the Arthritis Foundation will hold its Atlanta Arthritis Walk to raise awareness for the disease, research and the best possible treatment: exercise.

Moving is an excellent way to treat arthritis. Exercise can even prevent some types of arthritis from occurring.

Registration for the walk on May 14 will begin at 9 a.m.; pre-registration can be completed online. The walk itself will begin at 10 a.m.
