Our Story

If you have arthritis, you know full well what it’s like. The physical pain that makes everyday tasks difficult if not impossible. The emotional distress and feelings of isolation. The money it drains from your family budget. But many of those who don’t have arthritis don’t have a clue. Let’s show the world why we need to get a grip on arthritis NOW more than ever.

We took to the streets to ask people what they know about arthritis – and busted common myths and surprised them with facts.
