July 27, 2010 - PRLog -- Greenville, S.C. – The Arthritis Foundation is seeking walkers to participate in the 2010 Upstate, SC Arthritis Walk on Saturday, September 11, 2010 at Clemson University-International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR), 5 Research Drive, Greenville, SC.

The Arthritis Walk is the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide signature fundraising event that supports public awareness and raises funds needed to find a cure for arthritis, the nation’s most common cause of disability. Supporters who join the Arthritis Walk become part of the Let’s Move Together movement, a nationwide campaign led by the Arthritis Foundation that encourages people to move to prevent or treat arthritis.

The event features both a one-mile and three-mile course, with activities for the entire family.  Supporters walk in honor of a friend or family member with arthritis, while those with arthritis wear blue hats to signify their action in taking control of their condition.  In many areas, pet owners are invited to bring their leashed dogs to walk with them at the event.

To join the Let’s Move Together movement and sign up for the 2010 Upstate, SC Arthritis Walk visit http://2010upstatearthritiswalk.kintera.org  or call the Arthritis Foundation, Mid Atlantic Region at (800) 883-8806 ext. 102.
