Welcome to Rhode Island
There are more than 50 million Americans with Arthritis - 227,000 of them live in Rhode Island. 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.
Please join us on August 11 for Edd Pedro’s 16th Annual “Fight for a Cure” Wiffle Ball Tournament to be held at Slater Park, Pawtucket. Edd Pedro is a resident of Pawtucket, a JA Dad and has been instrumental in organizing this event to bring greater awareness of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis to the public, with proceeds benefiting the Arthritis Foundation.
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.
The evening will consist of cocktail reception, silent auction, sit-down dinner, entertainment and networking with medical, corporate leaders and friends of the Arthritis Foundation.
