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 25 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.
The virtual Walk is for those that want to participant but are unable to do so at a local walk for instance those that are travelling, live in a remote community or for who it is physically difficult. Virtual walkers can still fundraise on behalf of the Arthritis Society and receive the same participant benefits.
Participants who register for the Virtual Walk are encouraged to participate on their own the weekend of June 1 & 2.
By becoming a virtual walker, you will be able to:
- Register and fundraise online
- Create or join a team
- Create a personal donation page to tell donors why the cause is important to you
- Access online tools to support your fundraising efforts
