Walk AS One Passes the Baton to Spondylitis Association of America


Today marks a momentous occasion in our community’s journey for awareness.


Our hearts are brimming with pride and excitement! It gives us great joy to announce that Walk AS One, our beloved community-run organization dedicated to raising awareness and standing tall against ankylosing spondylitis, is passing the baton to the Spondylitis Association of America (SAA)! 

This transition heralds a new chapter filled with boundless possibilities. 

Since its inception, Walk AS One has been a beacon of hope for individuals living with AS. Through Walk Your AS Off, community engagement, and advocacy initiatives, Walk AS One has played a vital role in raising awareness about AS and fostering a supportive network for those affected by the condition. The annual Walk Your AS Off event in particular, has served as a cornerstone of the organization, bringing together participants from around the world to take steps for a common cause.

As Walk AS One reflects on its journey, the decision to transition to the Spondylitis Association of America emerges from a desire to ensure continued growth and sustainability in serving the spondyloarthritis community. With SAA taking on the Walk Your AS Off event, they have the ability to leverage the resources and expertise of a well-established organization with a longstanding commitment to supporting individuals with spondyloarthritis. This strategic move will enhance the reach and impact of Walk Your AS Off.

As the new steward of Walk Your AS Off, the Spondylitis Association of America brings decades of experience in providing education, advocacy, and support to individuals with spondyloarthritis and their families. With a comprehensive range of programs and services, SAA is well-equipped to carry forward the legacy of Walk AS One while expanding its reach and impact. By integrating Walk Your AS Off into its existing mission to empower those living with spondyloarthritis, SAA reaffirms its commitment to our global community. 

Walk Your AS Off will continue to serve as a rallying point for individuals worldwide to unite in the fight against spondyloarthritis. Participants can expect the same spirit of camaraderie, determination, and solidarity that has defined the event over the years, with added support and resources from SAA. Whether walking solo or forming teams, individuals can make a tangible difference by raising funds, raising awareness, and raising hope for a brighter future with spondyloarthritis.

Walk Your AS Off will now embark on an exhilarating new part of our journey that promises to deepen our connections and illuminate the path toward a brighter future for everyone affected by AS spondyloarthritis. Join us as we celebrate this historic moment and embrace the endless opportunities that lie ahead!
