Walk to Fight Arthritis - Sunday, June 9, 2013
The Walk to Fight Arthritis is a national event that brings families, friends and organizations together with a common goal - to help the 4.6 million Canadians living with arthritis. This event is taking place on Sunday, June 9th 2013 at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum with registration beginning at 1pm. The Walk offers a 1km or 5km route, entertainment for participants including a Kids Zone and includes a free BBQ lunch and free admission to the museum.

Registration volunteers will be handling money and must be 18 years of age or older.
