There is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating disease - that is why I am participating in the Walk for Arthritis.
"This disease is something I personally live with everyday. After many tests and almost a decade of trying different pain meds for chronic pain, I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. This diagnosis has helped my doctors find better medication options for my specific type of Arthritis but I will continue to be affected by arthritis. Harrison and myself walk to raise money for research and awareness of a disease that so many struggle with." - Karlee James
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!
