Central Coast North
There are more than 50 million Americans with Arthritis – 5,953,000,000 of them live in California. 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’s original Jingle Bell Run is a fun way to get decked out and be festive, while racing to raise funds and awareness to cure America’s #1 cause of disability.
Join the Fight
The best Advocate is someone who knows what it’s like to fight the everyday battles—someone like you. By sharing your personal story of Yes with legislators and lawmakers, you can become part of the solution.
