The Boston Arthritis Walk will be held on Sunday, Sept. 8 at Artesani Herter Park in Allston, officials said.
The all-ages, all-abilities event hosted by the Arthritis Foundation based in Newton runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and features a post-walk party with food, children’s activities, a raffle and entertainment.
Organizers said they are seeking more volunteers to help with running the event along with set-up and take-down.
“Arthritis affects 1.32 million, or 1 in 5, adults and 5,900 children in Massachusetts,” the foundation said in a statement. “This is a great opportunity for members of the community to help support the Arthritis Foundation in their mission to prevent, control and cure the over 100 types of arthritis and related diseases.”
