Be Spellbound with the Magic of the Arthritis Society

Do you believe in magic? The Arthritis Society is hosting an evening of wonder and awe at the National Gallery of Canada with Spellbound, in support of childhood arthritis.

CaptureOn Thursday, March 12, the National Gallery’s Water Court will be magically transformed into a spellbinding street fair. Featuring the entertaining busker-style circus performers of Zero Gravity Circus, food and refreshments, the night will surely remind you of the magic of childhood.

Sadly, for thousands of Canadian kids and teens who are living with arthritis, that magic is hard to find. The chronic pain, fatigue and mobility restrictions imposed by the disease can make daily life a struggle.

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability among young Canadians—but it doesn’t have to be. Early diagnosis and treatment can make a huge difference between a healthy childhood and a life filled with pain.
