UCB, Inc. and Arthritis Foundation Partner to Celebrate the "Everyday Victories" of the Rheumatoid Arthritis Community
Date:12/11/2012

ATLANTA, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UCB, Inc. and the Arthritis Foundation are proud to announce the launch of "Everyday Victories," a program designed to celebrate the individual accomplishments of people succeeding with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).  The program provides a platform for the 1.5 million Americans impacted by RA to share stories of their personal "everyday victories" over the condition.1  For each victory submitted by a person living with RA, UCB will provide $1 to the Arthritis Foundation up to $30,000. 

RA is a chronic condition that causes painful swelling and fatigue that can disrupt daily life.2  Due to the nature of the disease, seemingly simple achievements like buttoning a shirt, mowing the lawn or folding laundry can feel like a victory for people living with RA. 

"For many people who battle RA, accomplishing everyday tasks can be a cause for celebration.  That's why we've partnered with the Arthritis Foundation to shine a spotlight on these daily triumphs," said Carol Satler, MD, PhD, Vice President, U.S. Medical Affairs, UCB, Inc.  "As a patient-centric company committed to developing medications for immunologic diseases like RA, we at UCB are propelled forward by the strength that these exceptional people show in spite of the challenges that RA poses.  'Everyday Victories' is our way of honoring those individuals while helping them to draw inspiration from one another."

Those interested in participating can visit www.EverydayRAVictories.com to enter a victory, view select submissions or the amount of funds raised.  They can also share information about the program with their followers on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.  Photo contributions to accompany victory submissions are welcome and encouraged.  Entries will be accepte
