Walk AS One is an all volunteer organization that mobilizes and motivates a global community to raise awareness and address the challenges of those affected by Ankylosing Spondylitis and its family of related diseases.
Walk AS One was formed in late 2015 following the extraordinary success of our fourth Walk Your AS Off awareness campaign. As the event continued to grow year on year, it became apparent that the Ankylosing Spondylitis community wanted to do even more year round to help raise awareness of the condition that affects millions globally. And so, Walk AS One was born.
Our main goal at Walk AS One is to help those with Ankylosing Spondylitis lead happier, healthier, and less painful lives. Walking is known to have great health benefits, and this couldn’t be more true with Ankylosing Spondylitis sufferers. Walk AS One exists to encourage and motivate those with Ankylosing Spondylitis to be more active through walking and regular exercise so that they can be in charge of their condition, and work towards improving their quality of life.
Through our efforts we hope that more people hear about Ankylosing Spondylitis and the affects it has on people’s lives. It currently takes 10 years for someone in America to get the correct diagnosis, and similar times elsewhere in the world. By helping to support the charities that support us, we can work together to help reduce that time to ensure people are being diagnosed quicker, and as a result, are starting on the correct treatment sooner, thus avoiding as much irreversible damage as possible.
