UPDATE: Due to a power outage at Logan University and the forecast for more severe weather, the 2017 Walk to Cure Arthritis has been canceled.
Join Logan University by signing up for the St. Louis chapter of the Arthritis Foundation Walk to Cure Arthritis at 6:30 p.m., May 19 on Logan’s campus. The walk, which has twin goals of increasing arthritis awareness and raising research funds, hopes to raise $157,000 – $15,000 more than the previous year.
The Walk to Cure Arthritis is a family-friendly event. Participants can walk a one-mile or three-mile loop as well as enjoy entertainment, food, educational booths and activities for kids. As always, Logan University faculty and interns will be on hand to provide chiropractic care to walkers.
Nearly a quarter of U.S. adults experience arthritis. While there are a variety of ways to tackle the attendant pain, chiropractic is increasing in popularity.
Logan has been supporting the Walk to Cure Arthritis since 2007. Since then, the University has been increasingly involved, and in 2012, the event officially moved from Forest Park to the Logan campus. At last year’s walk, the St. Louis chapter of the Arthritis Foundation named its first-ever Chiropractic Honoree for the 2016 Walk to Cure Arthritis.
Logan students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to join the University’s team. Registration – which is free – will remain open up until the night of the event. Fundraising is optional. Visit WalkToCureArthritis.org/StLouis for more information and to register as a participant of the Logan team.
