Striking one in every five adults and 300,000 children, arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability. The Arthritis Foundation (www.arthritis.org) is committed to raising awareness and reducing the unacceptable impact of this serious and painful disease, which can severely damage joints and rob people of living life to its fullest. The Foundation funds life-changing research that has restored mobility in patients for more than six decades; fights for health care policies that improve the lives of the millions who live with arthritis; and partners with families to provide empowering programs and information.
The Arthritis Foundation has various physical activity programs in the community- including a walking program. The Arthritis Foundation’s Walk With Ease program can teach you how to safely make physical activity part of your everyday life. Designed for people with arthritis and other chronic conditions, Walk With Ease will provide support, information and tools to help you succeed.
