Go Orange for AS

Join us for Go Orange for AS, our new campaign to raise awareness about axial SpA and funds to support our work.

It’s really easy to Go Orange for AS! From quiz nights to coffee mornings and bake sales, from sponsored silences to organising a step challenge or a dress down day at work or school, there’s no limit to what you can do!

Why is it so important to raise awareness and funds?

1 in 200 people in the UK lives with axial Spondyloarthritis (axial SpA or AS), yet 91% of the population has never heard of the condition. Axial SpA is invisible and leaves people feeling powerless, in increasing pain and extreme exhaustion. It’s progressive, so every year that passes without treatment can lead to more serious damage. If left untreated, it can freeze the spine and permanently fuse bones. It’s a race to stop its progress.

By taking part in Go Orange for AS, you are helping raise awareness which will help us win the race against axial SpA. By raising funds, we can help more people tackle the challenges of living with the condition sooner.

Register today, and we’ll send you a Go Orange for AS pack full of fundraising ideas and resources to make your fundraising activity a success. You can organise your Go Orange for AS activity at any time.
