About Move Your Way

Logo of the fundraising event Move Your WayMove Your Way – A new way to help the 6 million Canadians with arthritis

Move Your Way is a fun and easy way to make a difference in the lives of people with arthritis that lets you decide how and when you want to participate. Just pick your way to move, create a fundraising page using our easy-to-use tool, and ask your friends and family to support you – it’s simple as that!

How do you move? That’s up to you! Take the stairs at work for a week, go for a walk at your local park, run a marathon, do a yoga class, throw a dance party or host your own community walk. There isn’t one way to move or a specific day to do it, it’s all about staying active by doing what you love.

As a virtual, self-guided fundraiser, Move Your Way makes sure that more of the funds you raise go to what matters most – supporting cutting-edge research, championing the needs of Canadians affected by arthritis, and helping to fund innovative information and support that will deliver better health outcomes for those affected.

FAQ
  • What is happening with the Walk for Arthritis?

    We are immensely grateful for the efforts and contributions of our donors, sponsors, volunteers and participants in support of the Walk for Arthritis. Over the past decade you have not only helped to build a tremendous community of compassion, encouragement and support, you have helped the Walk for Arthritis raise over $12 million for projects in support of our mission. Thank you!

    After extensive deliberation and analysis, we have determined that 2019 was the final edition of the Walk for Arthritis and we will no longer be running this event. Going forward we will shift our focus to other more efficient fundraising initiatives in order to increase the impact that our supporters can make for Canadians living with arthritis.


     
  • What does this mean for the mission activities supported by walk revenues?

    There will be no disruption to the mission commitments we undertake on behalf of Canadians living with arthritis as a result of this decision. In the immediate term, we will draw from our reserves where necessary in order to ensure we are able to continue funding our full slate of ongoing mission activities. Going forward we are focused on developing new, more efficient ways of generating the necessary revenues to not only sustain but grow our revenues and in turn deliver a greater positive impact on the lives of Canadians with arthritis.

  • I really loved the Walk – how can I help ensure it continues in my community?

    The Walk for Arthritis was a special event for many individuals, families and communities. If you are passionate about continuing that experience, we encourage you to run your own walk in support of the work of the Arthritis Society.

  • Is the Arthritis Society a registered charity?

    Yes. The Arthritis Society's charitable number is 10807 1671 RR0003. When you donate to the Arthritis Society and the Walk for Arthritis you will receive a tax receipt. The Arthritis Society is also accredited by Imagine Canada, which means we are one of only a small number of national health charities that has been accredited for our commitment to transparency and accountability.

  • What does the money raised by donors support?

    Funds from our generous donors and sponsors have given the Arthritis Society the power to raise the profile of this devastating disease and to advance knowledge of the disease and explore solutions by funding best in class researchers. These funds also allow the Arthritis Society to challenge the status quo by undertaking advocacy into public policy, and to ensure our information and support programs address patient needs that are current and evidence-based.
    We will continue to support these priorities through the development of alternative fundraising activities going forward.
