A big group gathered at Foster Park for a mile and a 3 mile Walk to Cure Arthritis.

The goal of the event is to raise awareness and funds for further research.

Currently, more than 50 million adults and 30 thousand children have arthritis.  That's about 22% of the US population.

Organizers say they hope to raise $25,300 dollars from the event.
