Providing tips and resources for charity walks

I have already had the opportunity to participate in two Arthritis Walks this spring. One was held on the National Mall in Washington, DC and the other took place at Kings Dominion Amusement Park near Richmond, VA. The events were fun and raised more funds for the Arthritis Foundation than last year’s events.

Below are slideshows containing a few photos I captured at the charity walks. If you haven’t participated in a charity walk, consider getting involved soon. There are several national/international charity walk events listed at http://www.charitywalksblog.com/charity-walk-events/ for your convenience.

Thanks,

    One problems of those old people is arthritis. I hope that they would be inspired about this. My dad also have arthritis. I will also share this to him and hopefully he would be able to actively participate with this.

    One thing I’ve learned from myself is that you have to have discipline because time will come we will get older and our body will get weak. Arthritis is common to everyone especially to older people but we have to see to it that as early as now we are cautious about our health. I feel that this event would really inspired people all over the world.

      Monika,
      We should take care of ourselves, whether we have arthritis or not. What surprised me is how many kids are having to live with the disease. Thanks for your support of the walk events.

    Recently I was in Brasil and tried to explain to my friend what a fund raiser was. Eventually she understood what I was talking about, but still couldn’t figure out why people would donate money.

      Colin,
      There are some people who do not help others through giving. It is sometimes something you have to do and then the experience of giving will prompt you to do it again and again.

    Arthritis is a serious problem. Roger you said it, we should all take care of ourselves because at any age it can affect someones life, no matter how young or old…

  6. Charity is a personal emotive issue which benefits the giver just as much as the receiver thereof

    I have been in a similar walk last year, it was to raise fund for lung cancer. It is nice to be part of people who can do good thing for other people.

      Rob,

      Yes, there are over 100 types of arthritis. However, through the funds being raised we have a better idea of how to deal with arthritis and are also working towards a cure. This makes fundraising events like the Arthritis Walk critical to raise both funds and awareness for the arthritis cause.

      • MattNo Gravatar says:

        I read your response Roger and thought you were overexagerating about over 100 types of arthritis. I just Googled it though and cannot believe how many ways it can affect a person’s life! What I once thought was no more than a niggling annoyance I now realise can be a lot more than that. I appreciate the eye-opener!
