Friday is World Arthritis Day – wear blue!

Encourage your friends, family, fellow students and coworkers to wear blue to help spread arthritis awareness! 1 in 5 Americans (50 million, including 300,000 kids) are living with arthritis. Look around, there’s probably someone in your life that would appreciate your “blueness” on Friday, Oct. 12.

Take a photo of your blue ensemble and post it on our Facebook page or tweet it to us! Use the hashtag #WorldArthritisDay when tweeting and on Instagram to connect with others participating in World Arthritis Day. For more blue ideas, check out our World Arthritis Day board on Pinterest.


Kort looks and acts like most kids, the difference is that he has JRA. Kort (last year’s Janesville Jingle Bell Run Honoree) and his family are involved in advocacy and huge supporters of the foundation! In support of Kort and World Arthritis Day 2011, almost the entire 3rd grade at Kort’s school wore blue!
