New York, NY - April 11th, 2008- The Arthritis Walk is a fun-filled event to raise awareness and vital dollars in the fight against arthritis. Help find a cure for the millions americans with arthritis. Women almost twice as often as men. This equals an astounding 25% of the population and that includes 300,000 children.
