The Arthritis Society has a long history of generating support through runs like the Scotiabank Charity Challenge. A choice to run or walk for The Arthritis Society in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon is a choice to support more than 4.6 million Canadians living with arthritis in three main categories:
The opportunities today for revolutionary breakthroughs in arthritis research are truly staggering, but we must increase our commitment to get there. Specifically, we look to prevent, detect and treat arthritis before it takes hold of a person's life.
For those with arthritis, we know that the system of care they receive can be improved. We need more healthcare professionals who have the best arthritis training possible, to help people to manage and eliminate the pain of arthritis.
When you are diagnosed with one of life's toughest chronic diseases, community matters — and so does having access to the education and resources you need. Through workshops and other events, through online learning tools and other resources, we help people learn to be effective self-managers of their disease — and understand that they're not alone.
In the days and weeks leading up to the marathon we are offering you and your team fundraising support. Please contact us should you want to discuss fundraising ideas and how we can help make you successful. We are excited to promote the teams and individuals supporting The Arthritis Society through our social media and newsletter channels.
