World Ankylosing Spondylitis Day


World AS Day 2016_1

World AS Day is celebrated on the first Saturday of May each year. On May 7, 2016, WalkASOne teams will be putting in extra steps in an effort to shine the light of awareness on Ankylosing Spondylitis.

How did you celebrate World AS Day in 2016?

The Walking Spondies in Taiwan hosted a picnic potluck to raise awareness for Ankylosing Spondylitis at Da’An Forest Park in Taipei. You can read about their awareness event here.

The Taipei Times also heard about their AS awareness event, and they were featured in the What’s Happening Around Town news section in an article called Walking To Mars! They ended up having 47 walkers show up for their picnic and they racked up over 262,000 steps in one day.
