Detroit Walk to Cure Arthritis!


The 2016 WALK TO CURE ARTHRITIS at the Detroit Zoo on Saturday, May 21, 2016 was a great success!

One of the special events held annually nationwide to raise funding for arthritis research, exercise programs, information hotlines, and a camp for Michigan children living with arthritis is the Walk to Cure Arthritis. Since 2010, our Detroit Arthritis Walks have been held at the Detroit Zoo; we consistently have had one of the largest Walks to Cure Arthritis in the entire country! Click here for more information. There also are events being held in other cities. Questions? Please contact Laurie Rupp.
