World Autoimmune Arthritis Day | 20th May 2022
A global race around the world to unite community resources and raise awareness.
There is no other program in the world focused on Autoimmune Arthritis and associated diseases that is as large and has the potential global reach as World Autoimmune Arthritis Day. This event provides patients from anywhere in the world, regardless of physical limitations, the ability to find 100’s of resources for disease management, as well as the opportunity to interact with other community leaders just by logging into the internet. But none of this can happen without the generous support of our Sponsors.
WAAD15 engaged over 400,000 people over 6 days, potentially setting a record for any online single event ever held in the autoimmune arthritis community. There were two dozen Official Nonprofit Race Teams signed up to compete for the title of WAAD15 Champion (shown below) and four umbrella organizations (ACR, EULAR, NIAMS, and WEGO Health) who participated as Resource Kiosks. Participants were recorded from 57 countries, with the United States representing the majority. In 2016 we aim to unite over half a million! The event will take place May 19th through May 22nd, 2016.
Causes of Autoimmune Disorders
To understand autoimmune disease, you need to understand how the immune system works. In normal cases, the white blood cells (which are part of the immune system) protect the body against harmful substances known as antigens (i.e. viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, etc.) The immune system releases antibodies to destroy antigens when they invade the body.
In individuals suffering with autoimmune disease, the immune system has difficulties differentiating between antigens and healthy body tissues. This results in violent reactions which destroy healthy/normal body tissues. The immune system usually has a hard time differentiating between antigens and healthy body tissues because of the changes that antigens and some drugs trigger when they enter the body. This is true among individuals who have genes which make them susceptible to autoimmune disorders.
