About the Walk for Arthritis
The Walk for Arthritis is a one day community-based event that raises much needed funds for the more than 6 million Canadians affected by arthritis. The Walk for Arthritis was started in 2009 by small community groups who decided that people living with arthritis needed more support and who realized that if more funds could be raised, they might make a difference to their future.
Since then, every June, in more than 30 communities across Canada, thousands of people have started their Saturday or Sunday by choosing to walk with and among people confronted with the pain and limitations of arthritis. And they leave truly inspired.
Join us this year as we celebrate our 10th Walk for Arthritis. The day promises to be joyful, spirited and a day to be remembered.
