Why Fundraise

Sadly, with the growth projected in the prevalence of arthritis in Canada in the next twenty years, any funds raised now can be invested in finding solutions that will ease the pain of what will be 1 in 4 people. And for people over 65, that will be 1 in 2. It’s time to get moving on arthritis - now.

Fundraising Resources

When you register for the Walk for Arthritis you gain access to your own fundraising page in your participant centre. You can customize this page to let people know why you are walking, share it on social media, use it to start a team, and ask your network for donations.

New to fundraising? We also have a selection of tools and resources to help you maximize your 2019 Walk for Arthritis fundraising campaign, and have fun doing it!
