Second annual Walk to Fight Arthritis raises more than $1.3M

May 15, 2011

Today, thousands of Canadians in 25 communities put on their walking shoes to show their support and participate in The Arthritis Society’s second annual Walk to Fight Arthritis, presented by the makers of TYLENOL®. This year’s Walk raised more than $1.3M, which will be invested in vital arthritis research and programs for people living with arthritis.

Despite what Mother Nature had in store for several cities and communities today, Canadians braved the elements to show their commitment to participating and raising funds for this important cause.

To help increase funds this year, the makers of TYLENOL® have donated $10.00 per story for the first 2,000 approved stories shared on www.WalkToFightArthritis.ca. The Arthritis Society is pleased to report that as of today, Canadians have already shared nearly 2,000 inspiring and heartfelt stories about their experiences with arthritis.
