Parker University Partnering with the Arthritis Foundation



On May 9th, 2015 Parker University will be partnering with the Arthritis Foundation to co-sponsor the Walk to Cure Arthritis. This historic partnership with the Arthritis Foundation and Parker University will benefit the university, the association, the profession and most importantly those who suffer from arthritis. Parker’s participation in the Walk to Cure Arthritis is proof that the university supports this groundbreaking relationship and we hope to establish annual participation in the WTCA. We hope to establish annual participation in the WTCA as an adjunct to the Parker Serves outreach to the DFW community. Also, this will be a great way for you to promote your practice and participate an activity that will be fun and immensely rewarding.

The Arthritis Foundation (www.arthritis.org) is the largest and most trusted nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the needs and challenges of those living with arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability. Since 1948, the Foundation has remained committed to leading groundbreaking research for better treatments and a cure; fighting for patients’ access to affordable and effective health care; and providing trusted information and resources to the more than 50 million adults and 300,000 children living with the disease. To learn more about the life-changing work of the Arthritis Foundation in Texas, visit www.arthritis.org/Texas.

The Walk to Cure Arthritis North Texas is scheduled for Saturday, May 9 at Globe Life Park in Arlington. The walk will begin at 10:00am.  There is no minimum to the number of people in each team or on the amount of money raised.   As the Foundation states – “Every Step Counts and Every Dollar Matters.”

This is an exciting venture and we are thrilled to bring this opportunity your way.   For more information please contact Donna Wald at dwald@parker.edu or visit www.walktocurearthritisnorthtx.org.
