Times…They are a Change’ in

We are in the midst of an interesting time (to put it modestly). The world is a buzz… but hasn’t it always been that way. There is instant camaraderie as we seek to support each other in our time of need. Many call this period of challenge “The Great Reset” or an opportunity to look at where we are as a community and how we can focus on the things that really matter most to us. This is the time to be most grateful for where we have been and to focus on what new directions we will go in the future. We all have needed to make changes in the way we operate and hopefully we will be better for it. The Arthritis Foundation has a sixty year record of moving forward and adapting in the midst of challenging times. Our mission has stayed consistent and we will continue to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control, and cure of arthritis and related diseases. Please help us keep focused on our goal to touch the 1.3 million people in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana living with arthritis. No matter how our political, social, or economic times ebb and flow, there will be an increasing need to advocate for arthritis diseases and their effects on the well-being of people closest to us. If the Arthritis Foundation can be of assistance in any way, please let us know how we can help you and your family or friends. We would also like to connect with you about ways that you can make a difference in our organization. If you know of resources that can assist the Foundation, we welcome your support. Like the old adage states, “There is no better time than the present”. Together we can emerge stronger through our shared experiences.
