Erase the Pain

As many as 24,000 Canadian children and teens live with arthritis, or more than three out of every 1,000 kids. The Arthritis Society wants to hand back childhood, and help these kids enjoy being kids. In recognition of March as Childhood Arthritis (CA) Month, we’re raising awareness through a number of events and initiatives.

You can help hand back childhood by making a donation to our dedicated childhood arthritis fund. Your contribution will help support research, programs and other initiatives specifically targeted to addressing the challenges facing kids and families impacted by CA.
