Welcome to Utah
There are more than 50 million Americans with Arthritis - 394,000 of them live in Utah. 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.
JOIN THE YOUNG ADULT COMMITTEE
where young adults (YA), 18-35 years old, with arthritis and related rheumatic diseases, come together in a JOINT effort as champions in the fight to cure arthritis.
This family friendly event is held at a location that offers a fun day for the whole family! Kids ages 3-12 will participate in activities led by trained volunteers. Teens will have the opportunity to get to know one another in activities designed especially for ages 13-17.
