Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Millions of people wake up with arthritis every morning and face the day in pain, without the support and recognition they deserve. Arthritis attacks what it means to live, and people with arthritis are often left to manage alone. 

Many of my family members suffer with arthritis of some type or another, especially my brother who, for a lot of his life, experienced real struggles with rheumatoid arthritis until he found ways to help ease it as much as possible. I, myself, have just been diagnosed with two types of arthritis, both in mild forms. This is on top of another joint condition I have, which can affect me greatly. That’s why, while I can, I want to run the GNR and raise as much money as possible to fight this horrible condition and help others, hopefully, live an easier, better and pain-free life.

Versus Arthritis invests in breakthrough treatments, the best information and vital support for everyone affected by arthritis. Please sponsor me so that together we can overcome the pain, isolation and fatigue of arthritis.
