About the Arthritis Foundation
by Niki Wyre
RA Chicks is constantly trying to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation and their efforts, whether through online donations, participating in walk teams, helping plan Arthritis Foundation events, or supporting other fundraisers on behalf of the Arthritis Foundation.
Recently I have been invited to participate with both my local AF chapter as well as with the Florida state Chapter to help make future plans and decisions to continue raising money for their work.
So who is the Arthritis Foundation? The AF is a national, non-profit organization that centers around all the different types of arthritis , which is over 100 different types of arthritis or arthritis related conditions.
The Arthritis Foundation published the Arthritis Today magazine, sponsors walks around the United States, raises awareness on arthritis, educates the public, advocates for arthritis with political lobbying, conducts programs to collect evidence on arthritis, and much more.
They also offer an information online website at arthritis.org that includes tools, symptom tracking, learning information, event locators, fitness class locations, resources, and ways to help in their advocacy for arthritis.
How can you help?
The Arthritis Foundation accepts donations in many different ways. You can make donations directly on their website. RA Chicks raises money for the Arthritis Foundation through our RA Chicks Gear store on Cafepress, our RA Chicks Walk teams, and different events that hold throughout the year.
