The New Jersey community united at Berkeley College in Woodland Park, NJ, for the 2017 Walk to Cure Arthritis New Jersey on May 21, 2017. The Arthritis Foundation’s signature event raised funds and support to benefit the more than 50 million people affected by arthritis pain in the United States.
The day brought together more than 800 participants to walk and enjoy family-friendly entertainment. The Berkeley College team, comprised of faculty, students, staff and alumni, was among those honored as leaders in fundraising during the event’s opening ceremony.
“Together we are taking another step toward victory and finding a cure for arthritis,” said Kevin L. Luing, Berkeley College Board Chairman. In addition to hosting the event in Woodland Park, Berkeley College served as Corporate Chair.

Walk to Cure Arthritis New Jersey is part of the Arthritis Foundation’s efforts in finding a cure for the millions of people who suffer from arthritis pain, including 300,000 children and their families.
Aidan Philbrick, the event’s 2017 Youth Honoree, was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) when he was just over 2 years old. “I’m one of the lucky ones; JIA hasn’t slowed me down,” said Mr. Philbrick. “However, I know this is not the experience other kids have. That’s why I am proud to be an advocate for the Arthritis Foundation.”
