Walk to Cure Arthritis is the Arthritis Foundation’s nationwide signature event supporting our mission to conquer arthritis by spreading awareness and raising money for research aimed at finding a cure. Whether you are close to the disease or simply looking for an inspiring charity event, Walk to Cure Arthritis is a great way to experience the power of standing together and giving back to the community. The event features a one-mile course, with arthritis information and activities for the entire family. Pet owners are encouraged to bring their dogs. Let's raise funds to find a cure for arthritis, then come together to support each other and walk! Every step counts, every dollar matters!
The Arthritis Foundation's JA camps give kids with arthritis and related conditions the chance to make lasting memories. For many campers, it's the first time they’ve met other kids who live with the same challenges and limitations. JA camps provide a safe and encouraging environment, and all are led by trained staff and volunteers. Health care professionals are on site to tend to any medical needs and make sure prescriptions are taken on schedule.
