The inaugural Walk To Fight Arthritis will take place in Kelowna on May 15 at Kerry Park.
More than 250 are expected to participate, with the proceeds to be invested in vital arthritis research and programs for Okanagan residents who live with this debilitating disease.
“We’re very excited to have the Walk in Kelowna for the first time,” said Trudy Battaglio, with The Arthritis Society, B.C. and Yukon division.
“Our goal is to raise funds and awareness through the walk, and show people who live with this disease, that they are not alone in their fight.”
Registration for the walk starts at 8:30 a.m., with the walk beginning at 10 a.m. for the one and five km route options
