Arthritis can make you STRONGER!

Thank you to everyone who makes the Arthritis Foundation a strong organization. Your strength keeps us going throughout the year. In just two short weeks, you have helped us through two successful Let’s Move Together Arthritis Walks in Colorado and celebrated with us as we honored four distinguished gentleman during our annual Evening of Honors Gala. Where ever we turn there are people that have overcome many of the obstacles associated with arthritis and gained a strength that is awe inspiring. All around us there are individuals that take their silent struggles with arthritis diseases and help form a new lease on life for others. Take the time to hear the many stories that have molded arthritis patients into powerful people, while bringing hope to others. They are proof that arthritis can make you stronger.
