Dear Arthritis e-Advocate,
Thank you for the important work you do as an e-Advocate for the Arthritis Foundation. Your voice has been heard and our legislators are listening to the needs and concerns of people with arthritis.
I would like to invite you to take another step in the fight against arthritis and attend an Arthritis Walk in your area. The Arthritis Walk is the largest fundraising event sponsored by the Arthritis Foundation. The money raised supports community education, exercise programs and research.
If you are physically unable to walk, don’t worry! Most of the people attending the walk are the Faces of Arthritis, just as you are; you will see a lot of crutches, wheelchairs and canes. You can still attend the walk and experience the event; visit our sponsors, obtain educational materials and meet others whose lives are affected by arthritis.
Come by yourself; or better yet, start a team! Bring your family and friends. Join others who are walking and fundraising to find a cure for the leading cause of disability in the United States. Tell others that arthritis is UNACCEPTABLE.
Mission Delivery Chairperson, National Arthritis Walk Committee
