I feel honoured to be selected as the Walk Hero for the first ever Walk for Arthritis being held in Bridgewater!
I was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis when I was seven years old and hope my participation helps to create awareness about the disease and raises funds for the great programs that the Arthritis Supports. Most people don't know that kids can get arthritis, too.
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.
