Arthritis is a serious disease with no cure. Today, more than 6 million Canadians are affected by arthritis, that is 1 in 5. These numbers are only going to increase. By 2035, 1 in 4 Canadians will have arthritis. That means you or your wife, your mother or your brother just may have arthritis. There is no cure for this painful disease that reduces mobility and results in the loss of opportunities and enjoyment for those living with its effects every day. When you join the Walk for Arthritis, you will help the Arthritis Society to achieve the vision to live in a world where people are free from the devastating effects that arthritis has on lives.
