WHY: Arthritis is America’s #1 cause of disability, costs the U.S. economy $156 billion dollars a year and is a more frequent cause of activity limitation than heart disease, cancer or diabetes. It affects one in every five adults, an estimated 300,000 children and countless families.
The Arthritis Foundation is working hard to speed up the timeline to a cure, while also fighting for everyday victories. Every dollar raised through Walk to Cure Arthritis events across the country help pave the way to a lifetime of better through life-changing information, advocacy, science and community.
