WSPT is proud to announce this year’s indoor Arthritis Walk-a-Thon will be from January 10th through the 15th. We bring the Walk-a-Thon indoors so our patients can participate in the event while getting out of the cold, and some of them can even incorporate it into their therapy regimen.
We will have a dedicated treadmill in our gym for Walk-a-Thon use, although other treadmills will be made available if necessary. We are also allowing our patients who use the underwater treadmill in our HydroWorx Pool to donate those steps towards the fundraiser.
The Arthritis Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organization that supports the more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions, funding more than $380 million in research grants since 1948. The foundation helps people take control of arthritis by providing public health education; pursuing public policy and legislation; and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis. WSPT has been working with the Arthritis Foundation since 2008.
WSPT also sponsors an outdoor Walk-a-Thon in April, but because we witness the daily pains and struggles of many of our patients suffering from arthritis, we were compelled to do more. And the indoor Walk-a-Thon is always very popular among our older patients who have trouble getting around on their own, but still want to contribute to curing arthritis … one step at a time!
