U of M-Flint to Host Arthritis Walk this Weekend

The Arthritis Foundation will host an Arthritis Walk this Saturday, May 4th at the University of Michigan Flint. The event – honoring 12-year-old Fiona Caughey of Hartland – promotes the health benefits of physical activity while raising awareness and support for programs, services, and research that help people with arthritis.

Caughey was just ten-years-old when she became tired and achy. Her parents thought it was growing pangs. The one day Fiona had excruciating wrist pain and was unable to open a car door. She was later diagnosed with Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis - one of 100 known variations of arthritis that affects 2.3 million Michigan residents including 10,300 children.

The Arthritis Walk is a fun and non-competitive three mile walking event. Walkers will enjoy refreshments, music, massages, and other family-friendly activities all on the grounds of the University of Michigan-Flint. Proceeds raised from the event will support the Arthritis Foundation’s work to prevent, control, and find a cure for arthritis.

Individuals or teams can sign up by contacting the Arthritis Foundation of Michigan at (855) 529-2728 or online at www.Arthritis.org/Michigan.
