Event Information

Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide signature event that unites communities across the country to put an end to arthritis. We aren't just helping the millions of people with arthritis to live better; we're charting the course to a cure.

Inclement Weather
Unfortunately, mother nature doesn’t always cooperate. In the event of inclement weather, we will post any cancellations or postponements on our Walk to Cure Arthritis Facebook Group. We will also make every effort to call all volunteers. Please DO NOT check the website, as we don’t have the ability to update that in a timely fashion. 

Event Location

Stars and Stripes Park
3701 S, Lake Hefner Drive
Oklahoma City, OK 73116

Event will be located in the Bob Hope Pavilion area – look for a small brick round building with a playground near it. Signs will be placed along the driveway to the pavilion to direct you to the right area.

Parking is available for FREE. There is a parking lot next to the Pavilion area, which should provide ample parking for participants. Overflow parking can be found in the parking lot to the south.
