About the Walk for Arthritis
Join us as we celebrate our 10th anniversary of the Walk for Arthritis right here in Kitchener!
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.
New this year! To celebrate this year’s 10th anniversary, we in Kitchener are having a Team Competition hosted by YMCAs of Cambridge and Kitchener-Waterloo which allows your team to go for GOLD! Any team that raises a total of $250 or more, can send one member into a series of brawn, brain and wit challenges for a chance to win a Gold Medal and a fantastic team prize! Is your team up for the challenge?
Join us for a fun day for the whole family. Let kids be kids, by getting their faces painted, checking out Jack the Nimblebus, interacting with costumed characters and much more! Don’t worry, kids wont be having all the fun all participants can check out our Arthritis Avenue, massages from CCMH, sample some delicious David’s Tea and get their body moving and warmed up with Curves!
To celebrate finishing the walk, participants are treated to a light lunch. Grab your slice of pizza donated from Panago and snack from Piller’s and stick around to hear the amazing results we at the Kitchener have accomplished.
Don’t miss out on the 2019 Walk for Arthritis Ontario Incentive Program! Every registered participant who raises over $1000 or more qualifies for an e-gift card from one of five exciting retailers. Click here for more details.
