Help the World Get a Grip on Arthritis During Arthritis Awareness Month

May is National Arthritis Awareness Month, and we’re asking you to join us in our fight against the world’s most prevalent disease.

Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in the United States, affecting one in every four adults, nearly 300,000 children and countless families and loved ones. The physical pain it causes can make everyday tasks difficult if not impossible. Perhaps worst of all, arthritis steals quality of life, preventing people from doing the things they love, like favorite hobbies or activities and even simple pleasures like picking up their child.

That’s why we’ve launched our Let’s Get a Grip on Arthritis campaign. CVS Health®, the campaign’s Presenting Partner, is working with us to help Americans get a grip on arthritis. Shop at CVS Pharmacy® before May 31 and they’ll donate $1 back to the Arthritis Foundation with the purchase of select products, up to a maximum of $300,000.

October 12 is World Arthritis Day

Help raise awareness about arthritis during #WorldArthritisDay! Since 1996, World Arthritis Day on October 12th has unified people of all ages, races, and genders to raise awareness of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). On this day, we strive to raise awareness and share information and support with RMD patients and their caregivers. This year’s theme, “Don’t Delay, Connect Today,” initiated by EULAR, aims to highlight the importance of early diagnosis of RMDs. Together, we can work together towards earlier diagnosis and timely access to care!

As the Champion of Yes, the Arthritis Foundation moves forward every day in ways to improve access to care, providing new information and supporting scientific advancements to find a cure. We strive to provide many ways for those with arthritis and their loved ones with ways to keep saying Yes to life – including valuable tools and resources, such as toolkits you can access on the go, a 24/7 helpline, and access to local resources that will help you conquer everyday challenges.
