This is my third year participating in the Walk for Arthritis and I am committed to this cause and have recruited some friends to join me supporting the Arthritis Foundation.
As most of my friends and family know, I live with severe osteoarthritis that has heavily affected my spine causing me chronic pain and on going health issues. Arthritis is a disease that has no cure and many complications for people living with it. The Walk for Arthritis was started to help raise funds for research into this disease and it also helps fund treatments and equipment for those unable to afford them.
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!
