Silly team name but it referes to my personal history of having both my hips replaced (At age 19 and 20) due to having JIA (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) since the age of 8. I am now 28 years old and am in better shape than I was as a teen!
I've been wanting to participate for a while now so here we go! Please feel free to join me, donate, or just spread the word.
"Please support the Arthritis Society and our team!
We are walking because there is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating disease.
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 making a donation to support this important cause!
