#Goals4Arthritis – Celebrating arthritis victories during the 2014 FIFA World Cup™

Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) is launching #Goals4Arthritis to celebrate the "beautiful game" and encourage Canadians living with all forms of arthritis to follow our daily “goal” over the next four weeks of the World Cup to learn ways how you can remain able bodied and perform your best while living with disease.

#Goals4Arthritis will set a new ACE "arthritis goal" each day to promote exercise as a means to increase strength and flexibility, reduce joint pain, and help combat fatigue. We invite you to share your progress reaching ACE's "arthritis goals" by uploading and sending us pictures and stories of your accomplishments on our social media networks: The arthritis community appreciates your love and support. Please feel free to invite your friends, family, and colleagues to participate, whether they have arthritis or not. Alternatively, you may post your own goals for others. The goal should help others achieve a balanced lifestyle and related to sports, the FIFA World Cup™, injury prevention, and healthy living.

Please note that the daily goals vary and may not be physically suitable for everyone. Always consult your doctor before trying a new activity or form of exercise or treatment plan.
