world arthritis day 2010

In observance of World Arthritis Day, the Arthritis Foundation is calling on all Americans to "Do Blue" on Tuesday, October 12. By dressing head to toe in blue--from blue do's to blue shoes--America joins in the celebration to make it truly a worldwide effort. Even some of our national landmarks and monuments will be dressed in blue (lights, that is).

Our “Do Blue” campaign aims at raising awareness of arthritis in all its forms and urging the nation and individuals to take action to reduce the impact of our most common cause of disability.

The Arthritis Foundation is coordinating several exciting events to celebrate here in the United States:


Help us "walk" around the world by October 31 to raise awareness that moving is the best medicine to fight arthritis pain.

Our goal is to walk 24,906 miles collectively--the circumference of the world. Watch our combined mileage grow on a graph of people circling the globe. You can even post a photo of yourself in our gallery of participants. Go ahead! Make your mark on the world!

An online, real-time, question-and-answer event, and you’re invited!

The Arthritis Foundation is delivering special water bottles to all members of Congress on October 12.

They're "special” because they’re tagged with information about the physical challenges and burdens of various forms of arthritis—not just valuable facts, but recommendations for crafting new legislation on behalf of people with arthritis at school and in the work place.
