Congratulations walkers – what a truly amazing effort! By activating you advocating spirit, you moved people to motivate and contribute to our quest for a cure and our vision of a world free of AS. YOU have increased awareness worldwide – the first steps in reaching our goals! On top of that – you are doing something very positive for your health. We hope you continue on with your pedometers and that we’ll see you next year.
