This Friday, October 12, is World Arthritis Day!
World Arthritis Day is a special day that unifies people of all ages, races, and genders to raise awareness of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). Each year, thousands of people all around the world take to social media using the #WorldArthritisDay hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to celebrate the strength and determination of people with arthritis. This year, we’re going a step further.
Starting today, the Arthritis Foundation will be blacking out its homepage and all its social media channels to spread awareness throughout the week leading up to #WorldArthritisDay. Although the “lights” will be out, the messages won’t stop. We’ll make sure to be tweeting and posting on the #WorldArthritisDay hashtag with the stark facts of what it’s like to live with arthritis for over 54 million people in the US.
What’s more, we’ll be sharing an exciting announcement that will take our support of the arthritis community to new heights. We hope that you join us.
Stay tuned for more information. It all starts this week. It all starts here.
