Arthritis Foundation Nebraska, one of CHC-NE's 22 member charities, is hosting its annual Walk to Cure Arthritis on Saturday, May 13, 2017. The event will be at the Pavilion at Mahoney State Park starting at 8:30.
Last year's record-breaking crowd of 340 participants and 50 volunteers meant that the event has outgrown Schramm Park, which is why the event was moved to Mahoney State Park. The event honorees this year are:
- Kathryn Wildy, MD., from Rheumatology Consultants, Medical Honoree
- Cathy Pietrick from Omaha, Adult Honoree
- Alexis Bach from Emerson, NE, Youth Honoree.
Schneider Electric/DTN/The Progressive Farmer is the presenting sponsor. Other sponsors are Home Instead Senior Care, Westroads Rheumatology, Ortho West/Rheumatology Consultants, Fremont Health, Rheumatology and Osteoporosis Service from Lincoln, Lincoln Federal Savings, GIKK Ortho Specialists, CHIHealth Orthopedics and Sandhills Publishing.
