Joints in Motion: Join the Arthritis Foundation to Help Americans with Arthritis!

  [ 16 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • August 26, 2003

Joints in Motion

Become a member of Joints in Motion, the Arthritis Foundation's athletic training program. You will raise funds for the Arthritis Foundation. We will train you to run or walk a marathon or hike a challenging trail and send you to one of our many exciting locations. And together we will help improve the quality of life for millions of men, women and children with arthritis.

Walk or run a marathon

The Joints in Motion marathon training program is designed to guide people of all ages and fitness levels through an extensive training program to complete a marathon. Approximately 80% of all Joints in Motion athletes have never run or walked a marathon before, but with our careful guidance and encouragement, nearly all of them go the 26.2 mile distance and cross the finish line.

Our seasoned coaches offer 20-week training sessions in most areas that include detailed training schedules, weekly group walks or runs, and ongoing support to increase endurance and improve walking and running strategy. In addition, you will have the opportunity to attend clinics to learn more about important subjects such as proper footwear, nutrition and the importance of stretching.

Take a Hike

Become a member of the newest Joints in Motion event! Hike some of the world's most superb hiking destinations. You choose your level; Trailblazer (medium level of difficulty) or Challenger (advanced level of difficulty, rougher terrain, longer distance) and you will be trained to complete a hike that will challenge you, while you help millions of men, women and children take control of arthritis.

Travel to an exotic location

Once you have reached your fundraising goal, we will send you to the exotic location of your choice. You will receive airfare, hotel accommodations, local transportation and race entry fee. Once you arrive at the destination you will also enjoy a team carbo-loading dinner, celebration party, team gear and, perhaps most importantly, the company of other athletes equally committed to this cause.

We handle the details so all you need to worry about is getting in shape, raising funds for arthritis research, and experiencing the excitement of traveling to a great location.

Help raise funds for arthritis research

The perceptions about arthritis vary, but the numbers don't lie:

There are more than 100 forms of arthritis

70 million Americans have arthritis

300,000 people with arthritis are children

Arthritis is the nation's number one cause of disability

Arthritis costs the US economy nearly $82 billion annually in lost wages

Arthritis affects one in three Americans. That one could be you, your neighbor, a co-worker or family member.

Your participation in Joints in Motion allows you to honor someone living with arthritis, increase awareness of this disease and raise much-needed funds for research.

Meet Our Team

People are what make the Joints in Motion team the best. Our coaches, staff, past athletes, honorees with arthritis, and current team members want to see you succeed at your personal goal. Each person involved knows the challenges you will face while training and is here to support and guide you every step of the way.
