    Walk to Cure Arthritis

    Now More Than Ever

    Your health and safety are always our top priorities. To reduce the risk of contracting or spreading the coronavirus, we’re doing things differently in this year’s Walk to Cure Arthritis, our flagship fundraising event. On May 16, 4 p.m. ET, we’ll come together virtually on Facebook, with a live panel of Arthritis Foundation representatives, celebrities, influencers and engaged volunteers — plus much more.

    Your participation and fundraising are more important than ever as we honor the 54 million Americans living with arthritis. Together, we’ll make a BIG IMPACT, raising awareness and funds to change the course of arthritis. Arthritis won’t end without your support. Thank you!

    GIVE $54

    Every $54 donation will make a significant impact on arthritis research, resources and services. Your gift goes a long way, changing the future of arthritis today and for future generations.
