Arthritis Olympics Challenge – Let the games begin!

Let’s celebrate the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics by committing to the Arthritis Olympics Challenge

Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) has created the Arthritis Olympics Challenge to celebrate and support all the athletes in the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics games. We want to recognize that despite living with arthritis, people can remain active and become Olympians in their own sense.

The “Arthritis Olympics Challenge” will run from February 7-March 16, concurrently with the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics games. ACE will have a new challenge for you every day. We invite you to share your progress with us by uploading and sending us pictures and stories of your accomplishments on our social media networks: During the Olympics, ACE will be profiling past and current Olympians with arthritis and sharing exercise videos on YouTube. Stay tuned on our social media networks to discover your challenge of the day. The arthritis community appreciates your love and support. Please feel free to invite your friends, family, and colleagues to participate, regardless of whether they have arthritis or not. Alternatively, you may post your own challenge for others.

The first challenge will be: Walk for 30 minutes.

Please note that the daily challenges vary and may not be suitable for everyone. As with any other treatment plan, please consult your doctor before starting a new exercise plan.
