Walk Your A.S. Off™ was conceived and founded in 2012 by Jennifer Visscher, an A.S. Health Advocate and blogger. The goal is to get people with any form of spondylitis to raise awareness of the disease while working to move their bodies and be more active, which is one of the best things patients can do to help manage their disease. The event happens every year in the month of May. Your record your steps weekly between May 1 and May 31 on http://walkyourasoff.com/ website after logging into the site.
Please join our team A.S. Busters -the team of the Canadian Spondylitis Association. See below on how to participate.
For awareness, for our health, for the future! Standup to Spondyloarthritis!
