The Arthritis Foundation is the leading health organization addressing the needs of some 50 million Americans living with doctor-diagnosed arthritis, the nation's number-one cause of disability. Founded in 1948, with headquarters in Atlanta, the Arthritis Foundation has 46 chapters and 150 community service points located throughout the country.
The Arthritis Foundation is the largest private, not-for-profit contributor to arthritis in the world, funding more than $380 million in research grants since 1948. Through the support of more than 600,000 volunteers, the foundation helps individuals take control of arthritis by providing public health education; pursuing public policy and legislation; and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis.
The mission of the Arthritis Foundation is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.

About Let's Move Together:
Let's Move Together is a nationwide movement led by the Arthritis Foundation that encourages people to move every day to prevent or treat arthritis. Arthritis touches everyone's life, so we believe in delivering the message of good health and movement to everyone – not just to those living with arthritis. Chances are you are connected in some way to someone affected by arthritis. We aim to activate anyone and everyone who can benefit from exercise, especially people who can influence and inspire those living with arthritis. Anyone can join the movement by committing to move daily for better health and setting a goal of participating in their local Arthritis Walk.
