Kingston and Belleville Walk for Arthritis

BACKGROUND:

The fourth annual Kingston Walk for Arthritis will be held over the weekend of April 23-25th, 2021 in a new virtual format.

Join us as we walk to support the 6 million Canadians who live with the emotional and physical pain of arthritis. It is a day of the year where we can come together to celebrate the strength and courage of so many of our neighbours, friends, and family who fight this disease every day.

The Walk for Arthritis has traditionally been the marquee fundraising event for The Arthritis Society, a national non-profit organization that helps raise much-needed funds for cutting-edge research, proactive advocacy and better solutions that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis. Proceeds from our event will go towards this essential cause.

Since its inception, the nation-wide Walk for Arthritis has raised over $10 million. In the past, the event in Kingston has raised upwards of $10 000 in a year.

 

HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE:

  • From April 23rd to 25th, choose 1k or 5k to walk or run
  • Send us your name, a selfie (if you can), and how long it took you to do it (can reach out over Instagram, Facebook, or email)
  • (optional) use the app or website Strava to record your participation and interact with our community: https://www.strava.com/clubs/kingstonWFA

We would absolutely love if you could also spare any money to help support our cause. But regardless of whether you can donate, we still hope to see you at our event!!
