Every Step Counts

Walk Your A.S. Off is a community organization that holds "virtual" walk events. Virtual simply means we walk where we live and work without the need to attend any events.

Walk Your A.S. Off spring event begins May 1st! It's not too late to join or form a team. Together we are beating AS one step at a time!

We walk not only for our health but to raise awareness of Ankylosing Spondylitis (A.S.) and the family of related diseases. We track our daily steps and set large collective goals. Our walks bring people & teams together from all over the globe, showing that a small group of people can take great strides to change the world.

Jennifer Visscher

Director and Founder at Walk Your A.S. Off
Jennifer Dye Visscher started Walk Your A.S. Off in 2012 after realizing her work was not done after completing a year long AS awareness campaign called Art Apple A Day. During that year Jenna created a piece of art of an apple every day for a year to help raise awareness of the disease she and nearly 33 million people worldwide struggle with - Ankylosing Spondylitis. When Jenna is not developing and growing the soon to be non-profit, Walk AS One (the name of the organization this walk and others will be run under), she is a real estate agent in Maine where she lives with her husband Doug, their dog Ella and a not so little cat named Bitty.

About Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis (pronounced ank-kih-low-sing spon-dill-eye-tiss), or AS, is a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, although other joints can become involved. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints (vertebrae) that can lead to severe, chronic pain and discomfort. In the most advanced cases (but not in all cases), this inflammation can lead to new bone formation on the spine, causing the spine to fuse in a fixed, immobile position, sometimes creating a forward-stooped posture. This forward curvature of the spine is called kyphosis.

AS can also cause inflammation, pain and stiffness in other areas of the body such as the shoulders, hips, ribs, heels and small joints of the hands and feet. Sometimes the eyes can become involved (known as Iritis or Uveitis), and rarely, the lungs and heart can be affected.
