Sunday, June 9, 2013* will mark the 4th Annual Walk to Fight Arthritis presented by the makers of TYLENOL® and we need you to join the movement. Register today to join thousands of people across the country to raise critical funds for The Arthritis Society to support the over 4.6 million Canadians living with arthritis.
I was diagnosed with arthritis when I was only two and a half years old and I have been living with the disease for 23 years. Through the help and support of The Arthritis Society my quality of life has greatly improved – I am able to manage my pain so I can now pursue my interests in theatre production and in advocacy. I will be joining the movement at the Walk and I can’t wait to cross the finish line!”-
You can make a difference – It’s YOUR move.
