Walk to Cure Arthritis Austin, TX

Saturday, April 26, 2014
Concordia University

The Walk to Cure Arthritis raises funds and awareness to fight the nation's leading cause of disability. We aren't just helping the millions of people who live with arthritis pain, we're funding research that's getting us closer to a cure.

The event features a three-mile and one-mile course, with arthritis information and activities for the entire family. Pet owners are encouraged to bring their dogs.

Let's raise funds to find a cure for arthritis, then come together to support each other and walk!

Meet Emily Dietman and the Sparklers Team

Hey y'all. It's Year Two for the Sparklers Team. In 2013 Loriann and I rocked it out at the event and this year we hope to have a full team to party with at the walk. It's super fun...and you get a great goodie bag, breakfast, and time with friends -- all while helping the cause!

I joined the Walk to Cure Arthritis last year to help the more than 50 million people who live with arthritis and their families after I myself was diagnosed with the disease. This year I'm on the planning committee and am hoping to have a larger team of walkers and raise more money.

I feel lucky to only have arthritis in my hands right now... so minor compared to others who suffer more severely. Your donation today will help fund arthritis research, education and community programs and get us closer to a cure for the millions who suffer from this debilitating disease, including 300,000 children. Please dig deep and give what you can. ALL donations, large and small, are an abundant blessing and mean the world to those with this disease!

Join or make a donation to the Sparklers Team here.
