Your generosity and leadership are helping us fight the fire of arthritis

“My friends thought I was nuts for getting this job. They kept saying, ‘You have arthritis, how do you do it?’, and I tell them, ‘One step at a time.’”
— Sandra, a mail carrier living with arthritis

As a member of our Leadership Circle giving community, we are pleased to share an exclusive Impact in Motion report showcasing how your donations are making a huge difference for the six million Canadians living with arthritis – people like Sandra, who was inspired to start a new career to keep herself moving after receiving an osteoarthritis diagnosis. Read more about Sandra on page 3.

Because of your support, we are fighting the fire of arthritis with the fire of research. Exceptional arthritis researchers across Canada are turning your donations into discoveries, improving care today and opening the door to new treatments for the future. Your generosity also fuels critical advocacy, information and support programs that empower people like Sandra to thrive despite the challenges of the disease.
