Hello to all my family & friends in fb land and everywhere. I have joined the "Walk for Arthritis" event this year taking place on June 3, 2018. Why am I walking? Well, I am one of the more than 6 million Canadians, 25K plus of whom are on PEI suffering with the pain of Arthritis. Two years ago I was unable to walk further than from the house to the car, groceries would take me 2-3 trips to get a full order, enjoyment of walking or dancing was non-existent. My joints just would not let me do things I loved. Having attended a few classes for mobility issues with The Arthritis Society as well as putting myself on a healthy journey has now allowed me to WALK. So WALK I WILL on June 3, 2018. I am asking you to support me in whatever way you can - whether it is financially or whether it is by registering to walk yourself and raising funds or getting a team together and joining our Walk. So many of you out there walk/jog/run every day - why not make it worthwhile and help support The Arthritis Society.
There is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating disease - that is why I am participating in the Walk for Arthritis. 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 solutions that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
Please join me in supporting this important cause. Come out on June 3, 2018 and have some fun with us!
