• Thank you for 10 years!

    Over the past decade thousands of individuals
    have come together to build a tremendous
    community of compassion and support.
    This has helped the Walk for Arthritis raise
    over $12 million for projects that fulfill the
    Arthritis Society’s mission. After extensive
    deliberation and analysis, we have determined
    that 2019 was the final edition of the Walk
    for Arthritis and we will no longer be running
    this event. There are many other great ways
    you can stay involved! Read more below.

The Walk for Arthritis

As Canada’s leading charitable funder of arthritis research, the Arthritis Society relies on the generosity of individuals and companies and we are immensely grateful for the efforts and contributions of our donors, sponsors, volunteers and participants in support of the Walk for Arthritis. To see what impact the Walk for Arthritis has had on our mission work, check out our Walk for Arthritis Impact Report.

As an organization committed to delivering impact through the donor dollars we receive, we always strive to both grow our fundraising revenues and to improve the efficiency by which those revenues are generated. After 10 years of the Walk for Arthritis and some remarkable accomplishments along the way, we feel we have reached the point where the Walk is no longer an efficient means of generating support for the mission work of the Arthritis Society. We are currently in the process of examining alternative fundraising options, with a focus on efficiently engaging not just the arthritis community but the broader Canadian population.

While we work away on that, we’d love to invite you to stay involved with the Arthritis Society! See below the variety of ways that you can continue to support our vision of a world where people are free from the devastating effects that arthritis has on lives.

to support the Arthritis Society! People across Canada are holding events or fundraisers to raise awareness about arthritis and to raise funds for the Arthritis Society. Your event doesn’t need to be big and bold, although it certainly could be! Here are some fun and easy ideas to raise money and support our big and bold work!

Get Started!


Move Your Way
Take the stairs at work for a week, go for a walk at your local park, run a marathon, do a yoga class or throw a dance party. There isn’t one way to move or a specific day to do it. Just pick your way to move, create a fundraising page and ask your friends and family to support you.
