The Arthritis Society

About Us The Arthritis Society is Canada’s principal arthritis health charity dedicated to funding and promoting arthritis education, research-based solutions and community-based support. The Society empowers the nearly 4.5 million Canadians with arthritis, 1.8 million in Ontario alone, to live their lives to the fullest by combating the daily limitations of arthritis. In the last 60 years, The Society has invested $160 million towards arthritis research to develop better treatments and, ultimately, find a cure. ‘ The mission of The Arthritis Society is to search for the underlying causes and subsequent cures for arthritis, and to promote the best possible care and treatment for people with arthritis.’

Volunteer Engagement Opportunities


JUNE 10th, 2012

 Walk to Fight Arthritis

The Walk to Fight Arthritis is the signature event of The Arthritis Society. It is a 1 or 5 km walk in support of the nearly 4.5 million Canadians living with the disease. The third annual Walk takes place on Sunday June 10th in 23 communities across Canada. Join us in support of a future without arthritis!

We cannot do this walk successfully without support of volunteers. There are many volunteer opportunities that you can get involved in. Opportunities include: registration, route marshalls, set up and clean up, entertainment and check point.

This is a great opportunity for a group of students, employee engagement programs, friends or family to come out and help us fight arthritis.
