World Arthritis Day 2016 – The Future In Your Hands Campaign

World Arthritis Day 2016
World Arthritis Day 2016


The future is in your hands! Share your personal story about living with a rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease (RMD). Tell the world how you have taken action to:

  • Live your life to the fullest (if you have a RMD)
  • Support people with RMDs (carers, healthcare professionals and the wider public)

Share a #WADStory with these 4 steps:
1.        Step 1
Write your personal RMD story. This is completely personal to you and could be:

  • About overcoming a hurdle of having an RMD
  • How you support someone who has an RMD
  • A hobby you still enjoy despite having an RMD
  • Continuing or adapting a relationship, career or education with an RMD

2.        Step 2
Show us that the future is in your hands! Take a photo or Instagram video that includes your hands, helping to tell your personal story. You can also use an existing photo or video, if you have one

3.        Step 3
Upload your story (please see an example below) alongside a photo or Instagram video to our gallery. Then share your story on social media using #WADStory

4.        Step 4
Share the montage video on 12 October. The montage video will feature on our website and social media channels, so please share it and encourage others to view it!
