Funds raised through events nationwide support the Foundation's work to speed up the timeline to a cure, while also fighting for everyday victories. Every dollar raised helps pave the way to a lifetime of better.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, "Arthritis impacts more than 50 million Americans (1 in 5 adults) and 300,000 children (1 in every 250). Two-thirds of people with arthritis are under the age of 65. Arthritis in children can cause eye inflammation and growth problems; it can also cause bones and joints to grow unevenly. Each year, arthritis costs the U.S. economy more than $156 billion."
