Event Details

“I don’t know many people with arthritis.”

 “It’s a disease that affects older people.”

 “Anyone can live with a little joint pain.”

 “Are you sure what you’re experiencing isn’t just in your head?”

From coast to coast, this is what we hear about arthritis every day. Although more Americans are living with arthritis than those with breast cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and autism combined, most people know very little about this debilitating disease. In fact, only 7% of Americans realize it’s the No. 1 cause of long-term disability in the United States.

To celebrate Arthritis Awareness Month during May, our Let’s Get a Grip on Arthritis campaign is back to debunk myths and reveal truths about the disease. With the help of four Arthritis Warriors and Presenting Partner CVS Health®, we’ll rally everyday Americans and corporate America to bring arthritis out of the shadows to spark lasting change.

The truth is 1 in every 4 people you know is living with arthritis. That means for millions of kids and adults, routine activities like unbuttoning a shirt, opening a jar or getting in and out of the car are a challenge — sometimes physically impossible.

But together, we can change that.
