National Arthritis Week 2014, 12 to 19 October





This year, Arthritis Research UK's National Arthritis Week runs from 12 to 19 October 2014.

I'd like to invite you to join us again and raise money for Arthritis Research UK.

Find out about the events already planned nationwide, or request your fundraising guide online.

The guide is packed with ideas to help you decide what you want to do, as well as tips to help you plan your fundraising activity.


How your fundraising helps

The money you raise will help support your vital research. This will, in turn, help transform the lives of the millions of people affected by arthritis and also raise awareness of the impact of this disease, the biggest cause of pain and disability in the UK.

Last year you helped raise £50,000 as well as raising awareness and supporting events nationwide.



What's National Arthritis Week 2014 about?

We know that that the pain of arthritis is often invisible but we want everyone to know how agonising it can be to people of all ages. So this year we're highlighting the impact that long term pain has on the 10 million people living with arthritis in the UK.

The aim is to reassure and inform people with arthritis that Arthritis Research UK understands what it's like to live with long term pain, and that we're here to support them as well as fighting to find a cure.

Your support, through your research, spreading the word, and fundraising will bring us one step closer to this goal.



World Arthritis Day, Sunday 12 October

National Arthritis Week 2014 starts on World Arthritis Day on Sunday 12 October.

Supported and managed by EULAR, the European League Against Rheumatism, this global event is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of the impact and prevalence of arthritis in the UK, as well as available treatments and self-help management options.


Thank you for supporting National Arthritis Week and for the work you do for us all year round.

With very best wishes,

Pete Morley,
Research Administration Officer.
