The mission of the Arthritis Foundation is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.
The Arthritis Foundation is the only national not-for-profit organization that supports the more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions. Founded in 1948, with headquarters in Atlanta, the Arthritis Foundation has multiple service points located throughout the country. The Arthritis Foundation is the largest private, not-for-profit contributor to arthritis research in the world, funding more than $380 million in research grants since 1948. The foundation helps people take control of arthritis by providing public health education; pursuing public policy and legislation; and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis.
I teach yoga and other exercises at the Christian Ymca. I am always telling people with Arthritis where you are and the resources you have. I am Arthritis Aquatics Certified, with your chapter. If I can be of further use please let me know..
I had a wonderful experience volunteering for the 2011 Arthritis walk in Philadelphia sponsored by the Arthritis Foundation. They were such friendly people who are passionate about the cause and appreciative of the volunteers' help. I look forward to participating more with the group.
