Arthritis Foundation holds annual walk in Springfield

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Hundreds turned out at Central High School on Sunday for the eighth annual Arthritis Walk.

Money raised from the event will go towards research and education to fight arthritis, the nation's leading cause of disability.

Organizers said more than 50 million Americans suffer from arthritis and that includes 300,000 children.

Previously, the walk had been held in Forest Park.

It was moved to the track at Central High School to make it easier for those with arthritis to walk in the event.
