Welcome to Eastern Pennsylvania
There are more than 50 million Americans with Arthritis - 2,984,000 of them live in Pennsylvania. The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. We are focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis through vital information, advocacy, science and community. Our goal is to chart a winning course, guiding families in developing personalized plans for saying yes – day after day.
The Arthritis Foundation gives children with arthritis the opportunity to make lifetime memories through camp. The specialty, residential juvenile arthritis summer camps focus on what campers can do, not what they can’t do. Campers are able to learn from others who have similar conditions and experiences. The program is designed to increase campers’ self-esteem by creating opportunities for them to meet personal challenges.
JA Days are a great experience for children with juvenile arthritis (JA), their parents, caregivers and siblings. The greatest benefit of these programs is getting to meet and network with other families who are affected by JA and share some of the same feelings, experiences and concerns. It's a place to exchange ideas, give and receive encouragement, make new friends and know you're not alone.
Come join us at our annual 5K walk and help support research to find a cure for arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability.
The Arthritis Foundation’s Bone Bash is a spirited way of talking about the seriousness of arthritis. All proceeds support our efforts to combat the disease and help more than 50 million Americans, including 2.9 million adults and 11,500 children in Pennsylvania, say, “Yes!” to a better life.
