The Walk for Arthritis is a one day community-based event that raises much needed funds for the more than 6 million Canadians affected by arthritis. By 2035, 1 in 4 Canadians will have arthritis. As the prevalence of arthritis increases, so does the demand for investment into cutting-edge research, proactive advocacy and innovative solutions that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
Since its inception, the Walk for Arthritis has raised over $10 million. This is the ninth year and they are hoping to raise $2 million, allowing the Arthritis Society to fund even more research and provide innovative solutions to those living with this devastating disease. Every registered participant who raises over $250 qualifies for the incentive program and can redeem for a gift card from one of five retailers.
