Walk to Fight Arthritis - Calgary

AS in Gear

Please support The Arthritis Society and our team called "AS in Gear".

On Sunday, June 4, 2017, our team is participating in the Walk to Fight Arthritis. We're walking and raising funds to help find a cure and support the over 4.6 million Canadians who live with the pain of arthritis. You can make a difference in their lives, and help researchers search for improved treatments by making a donation to any of our team members. Together, with your support, we can reach our fundraising goal for this very important cause.

There are different forms of arthritis, some associated with injured joints but many of unknown origin. I suffer from a type of autoimmune arthritis called Ankylosing Spondylitis or "AS". For arthritis sufferers, exercise is an important part of therapy - keeping those joints moving even when it hurts. For me, its motivating myself to get to the pool to start the day with a swim and hence the team name of "AS in Gear".

Please join the movement and make a donation to support this important cause. Thank you so much!
