Walk your AS Off

Walk Your AS Off is a community organisation that holds walking events from 1-31 May, and a one day event on World Arthritis Day on 12 October.

We walk to raise awareness of AS and the family of related diseases. Tracking our daily steps and setting team goals, we walk where we live and work without the need to attend any events. Our walks bring people and teams together all over the globe. At the end, we see which team has walked the most steps!

There'll be two British teams joining this year - the AS Buzzers and the Orange Apples - so you can choose a side and get involved in some friendly competition!
