One in four Americans suffers from arthritis, including 300,000 children. Arthritis is the nation's #1 cause of disability. Our Walk to Cure Arthritis is the largest arthritis gathering in the world, celebrating our warriors, raising funds for research, resources and a cure. Much more than just a walk event, it's something even bigger than arthritis itself. Join the UConn Huskies team and volunteer to walk for a cause! This is a virtual event with an opening Zoom ceremony at 10 am and then walk on your own after. We are trying ot get to 54 million steps of all participants of walks across the country -- YOU CAN BE PART OF THIS MOVEMENT! 54 represents: 54 million Americans that have arthritis -- that's 1 in 4, including 300,000 CHILDREN. You can raise money, recruit others, or spread awareness!
