Welcome to Maryland
There are more than 52 million Americans with Arthritis - 1,083,000 of them live in Maryland. 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.
If you need relief from arthritis pain or just want to be active, the Arthritis Foundation’s six week Walk With Ease program can teach you how to safely make physical activity part of your everyday life. Click here for more details!
Being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis is a life-changing experience. But there’s a lot you can do to take control of your situation – and we’re here to help you. This free event is an opportunity unlike any other you’ve had – you’ll receive expert guidance from a local rheumatologist and learn to set and track your own health goals, communicate more effectively with your doctor and other tips and tricks on how to live better with your RA. You will leave armed with the tools, education and support to start saying Yes more than No!
We invite you to join us at the Baltimore Commitment to a Cure Gala for an evening of celebration, live entertainment and an exciting silent auction. We will be honoring Dr. John Meyerhoff and Mike Ortman, who both have made a lasting impact in the local arthritis community through their professional and personal work. In Maryland, we proudly serve more than one million adults and over 5,000 children who are affected by arthritis through programs, patient education, and community support. The funds raised this evening will support the mission of the Arthritis Foundation as we continue to fight for a cure.
Looking for a good reason to get festive this Halloween? The Arthritis Foundation's Bone Bash fundraiser is a community-driven event that takes place in a few select cities across the country. These fun and spirited evenings raise funds to support our mission to conquer arthritis and help more than 50 million Americans say Yes to a better life.
The Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Run is the original festive race for charity. It’s where you can strut your stuff in your favorite holiday costume and FEEL GOOD about DOING GOOD. Together, we’ll jingle all the way to a cure – and have a fantastic time every step we take! Bring a team of friends, family and co-workers to run or walk. Get your jingle on and spread the Spirit of Yes: Yes to having fun and celebrating what you love. Yes to living life to the fullest. Yes to conquering arthritis for good. 100% of your registration fee and fundraising go to a great cause!
