Mike Weir Takes a Swing for Arthritis

Eight-time PGA Tour winner Mike Weir will be in Toronto on September 17 to talk about breaking free from the pain of arthritis. In partnership with ALEVE and The Arthritis Society, Weir shared his own story that took him from the top of his game to one of the most challenging periods of his life. After a 2011 golfing accident led to an elbow injury that later developed into arthritis, Weir’s career came to an abrupt halt and, unable to do what he loved, he experienced physical, mental and emotional hardship. The new ALEVE spokesperson, now back in the game after a long road to recovery and making headlines, wants to share his story in hopes of inspiring fellow Canadian arthritis sufferers to break free from their own pain.
