This is a very busy time of year for Arthritis awareness and fundraising! Check out the opportunities below to help spread awareness and fundraise for arthritis.
On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, Arthritis advocacy champions from across the U.S. will join together in Washington, DC to #AdvocateForArthritis. The Arthritis Foundation is calling on our U.S. sisters to amplify the impact of in-person meetings by participating in our spreading awareness on social media on March 10!
World Juvenile Arthritis Day
On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, join us in sharing awareness around World Juvenile Arthritis Day (JA Day)! This day shines a light on an insidious disease of many types that makes navigating childhood extra challenging for many kids and their families. We think JA needs to be brought out of the shadows through this global observance and bring our community together to celebrate our efforts to fight juvenile arthritis. Check AOII’s social media, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn for graphics to share and more information before and on March 18.
