Please join us on Team Jakob! Our hero has been battling with juvenile arthritis since the age of 18 months. This year he has been struggle with understanding why him? He doesn’t know any other kids with the same struggle and is searching for answers. As his mom I want to do anything a can to help him see a bright future so I’m starting here in hopes he will meet more kids like him.
I’m also walking not only for myself but countless family members and friends close to our hearts.
There is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating disease - that is why I am participating in the Walk for Arthritis.
Today, more than 6 million Canadians are affected by arthritis. These numbers are only going to increase. By 2035, 1 in 4 Canadians will have arthritis. That means you or your wife, your mother or your brother just may have arthritis.
As the prevalence of arthritis increases, so does the demand for investment into cutting-edge research, proactive advocacy and innovative information and support that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
This year the Walk for Arthritis is celebrating its 10th year - help make this the best year ever by joining the Walk for Arthritis community and supporting this important cause!
