Sunday, June 8th, 2014 we will find out “Who Moves You” as The Arthritis Society celebrates the 5th annual Walk to Fight Arthritis in Windsor! This year’s event taking place in Malden Park is a 1km & 5km non-competitive, family friendly event that see’s hundreds of people gather to show support to raising awareness and funds for people with arthritis.

For the past two years I have been the chair for this event in Windsor and with our amazing committee and volunteers we are trying to raise $30,000.00.

As always this event is a lot of fun and offers something for everyone in your family from the free BBQ to the kid’s area, fire truck tour, Zumba and more. On top of being fun it’s a great way for the community to show their support to people of all ages living with arthritis. It’s also a great opportunity for those people living with arthritis to not feel like they are alone in this battle by allowing them to meet other people living with the same things they may be facing on a daily basis.

As always the funds raised from this event go to support the work of The Arthritis Society. This includes:

  • Funding much needed research
  • Helping to continue to deliver programs in the Windsor-Essex area including the 2 hour free Chronic Pain Management Workshop
  • Supporting the Arthritis Rehabilitation and Education Program which is free physiotherapy, occupational therapy and social work services to anyone living with a confirmed case of arthritis in Ontario.

With 1 week to go until the event you still have time to get involved by visiting to register, volunteer and or donate. While you’re at it why not register a team of friends, family and or colleagues.

Our local major sponsors Kinetic Konnection, Integrity Tool & Mold Inc and the 4.6 million Canadian men, women and children living with arthritis in Canada invite you to join us June 8th!
