"All of our employees are excited to be sponsoring this event and participating in the Arthritis Walk®. Many of our clients live with arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, and come to Massage Envy for therapeutic massages to help them deal with the pain," says Lance O'Pry, Dallas/Fort Worth Regional Developer for Massage Envy, the leading provider of massage therapy in the United States.
The Arthritis Walk®, part of the Let's Move Together® movement, is the Arthritis Foundation's nationwide signature event that supports public awareness and raises funds to fight arthritis, the nation's most common cause of disability. Joining the 2012 walk is a way to help improve the lives of the 50 million men, women and children with arthritis.
Locally, the goal for the 2012 Dallas walk is to raise $200,000.
Get your company involved or recruit friends and family members to form a team. The funds raised will support critical Arthritis Foundation research and discoveries, public health initiatives and public policy efforts to improve the lives of people with arthritis.
The walk will be held at Park Central, located at 12700 Park Central in Dallas, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability, reduced quality of life, and high health care costs in the U.S. Of the 46 million Americans who suffer from arthritis, nearly half say that arthritis limits their normal activities. The good news is that recent studies suggest that massage can help reduce pain and increase mobility in those who suffer from arthritis. At Massage Envy, we offer a Massage Wellness Program to help cope with chronic arthritis pain.
