Emily and Jenna, stronger together
Jan 31, 2019
Through our partnership with the Arthritis Society of Canada, we came across Emily and Jenna’s story. They’re two of over 24,000 children in Canada living with arthritis. After becoming fast friends at Camp JoinTogether – a summer camp for kids with juvenile arthritis – they both feel stronger and more confident. Finally, they both have a friend who understands and supports them.
"We met 4 years ago. I’d say we’re best friends. We wouldn’t have met if it hadn’t been for Camp JoinTogether." - Emily
Stories like this inspire us to give where we live. That’s why we’re committed to help kids like them share great experiences. TELUS is joining forces with the Arthritis Society of Canada to send more kids to camp.
