On Saturday morning, June 5, our team participated in the 2010 Arthritis Walk at the Santa Monica Pier. The Walk is one of the Arthritis Foundation’s biggest fundraisers of the year. The money it generates helps serve those with arthritis, their families and funds research for a cure. In addition to providing pro-bono marketing services, team red rocket was proud to have raised over $2,000, thanks to the support of friends, colleagues and clients.

Although the weather was pure June Gloom, the mood was anything but, with stilt walkers, live music, face painters, food and drink setting a festive tone. When it was time to walk the Walk, we hit the streets of Santa Monica, along with thousands of others, and completed a refreshing 3-mile route. It was a great experience and, once again, thanks to everyone who supported us!
