Physical branch meetings are currently cancelled due to COVID-19. However there are virtual activities being run by some branches. Please contact your local branch for more information.

We hope you find the information on these pages helpful. Our team is working tirelessly to provide up to date advice in relation to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic. Record numbers of people are now turning to NASS for support, and we hope to be here for everyone. Our helpline and advice service are only possible thanks to donations from people like you.

Walk your AS Off 2022

Walk Your AS Off (WYASO) is an annual virtual step challenge all about getting active for health and raising awareness about axial SpA (AS).  It’s organised by Walk AS One, an all-volunteer organisation that mobilises and motivates a global community to raise awareness and address the challenges of those affected by Ankylosing Spondylitis and its family of related diseases.

NASS supports this event, alongside other organisations worldwide, to help raise awareness of axial SpA and raise funds to support our vital work.

Here’s how it works.

Each day during May, record the steps you take using your Fitbit or other pedometers and upload them to your team page on the Walk Your AS Off website. It’s really easy to join in, just do what you enjoy! There are no minimum or maximum steps, and any activity can count!  It’s all about taking part – whether you walk 50 steps or run 5,000, it all adds up to our collective team step total.

There is no minimum fundraising amount to take part in Walk Your AS Off, but every penny you raise will make a big difference and help us transform the diagnosis and care of everyone living with axial SpA (AS).

Plus, all Team NASS participants receive a welcome pack, a NASS t-shirt and a bandana for their four-legged friends.

  • Please note our ladies t-shirts are fitted. If you are in doubt of what size to order you may want to consider ordering a larger size.
    Whilst fundraising in aid of NASS I will behave appropriately and respectfully. I will pay all funds raised to NASS no later than 1 month after the event. I agree to respect and strictly follow government guidelines around outdoor exercise whilst walking and maintain social distancing measures to ensure the safety of all people.
