This year's arthritis walk is raising funds and awareness about the crippling disease, which 46 million people suffer from.

Cole Bumgardner and his mother, Lindsey, visited the NEWS9 studio to talk about their efforts in fundraising.

So far, Oklahoma has raised almost $25,000.

The walk will be held on May 31 at the Stars and Stripes Park at Lake Hefner. Participants choose to walk either a one-mile path or a three-mile path.
