---- — Chamber supports Arthritis Walk

LONDONDERRY — The Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber is supporting the local Arthritis Foundation Walk at Mack’s Apples on Saturday, May 18.

The event provides an opportunity for local businesses in Southern New Hampshire to reserve a booth and make a difference in creating a pain-free world for children and adults who suffer every day living with arthritis.

Registration starts at noon, the walk at 1 p.m.

Mack’s is at 230 Mammoth Road. Arthritis Walk is a celebration of year-round movement. It is building awareness for this debilitating disease and raising necessary funds to drive arthritis research, education and life improvement programs; it also continues the Arthritis Foundation’s search to find a cure to the nation’s leading cause of disability.
