We are Versus Arthritis to defy the pain & isolation of arthritis


Hi!! Im Aime, thank you so much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.  This year I am running the 2022 London Marathon for Versus Arthritis 

A bit about me...I am a Physiotherapist in frailty, I absolutely LOVE running, anything Disney and my Peloton and you'll see my social media full of this content! I am 34 and 32 I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Arthritis

In April 2020, out of nowhere, I started experiencing joint pain and swelling in my hands and feet.  After multiple phone calls to the GP I was finally referred to a Physio. He recognised my symptoms and referred me straight on to a consultant Rheumatologist.  I was quickly diagnosed with Early Onset Inflammatory Arthritis. This came as shock and relief, a relief to have a diagnosis as to the cause of the symptoms affecting simple tasks like typing and writing.  But also a shock that at 32 I had arthritis.... 

I realise how lucky I am to have had such a quick diagnosis and that treatment started soon after.  I understand there are so many people out there who have the agonising wait times for appointments, diagnosis and treatments.  Arthritis can affect anyone at any age in multiple forms.  As a Physiotherapist myself I never expected I would be the rheumatology patient! 

I want show that despite arthritis, it can be controlled and we can still achieve incredible things.  I have been given this amazing opportunity to run the London Marathon by Versus Arthritis and to help fund vital research to help push forward research for treatments, support for those suffering and maybe one day a cure

Any donations will be so gratefully received.  I will be posting training and progress updates on my social media - instagram Aime_runfitmagic and would love to connect with more people via these channels!  

Thank you again
