Our mission is to boldly pursue a cure for America’s #1 cause of disability, while championing the fight against arthritis with life-changing resources, science, advocacy and community connections. The Arthritis Foundation is focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis with life-changing information, advocacy, science and community. We chart the course for the arthritis community, helping families develop personalized plans for saying "Yes"— day after day. Arthritis affects 52 million Americans, 158,000 South Dakotans and more than 300,000 children (1000+ in South Dakota). 1 in 3 military veterans struggle with service related arthritis. Your participation is urgently needed to help find a cure. We invite you to join the team today and be a leader in the fight against arthritis!
