Hey, Im just putting a post on here to say that im a 17yr old girl, and have suffered from JIA for nearly 4 years now, for the last 3 and a half years I have been on crutches and in a wheelchair, but 3months ago I learnt to walk again...
I am now running the Bupa London 10k with my dad. We are doing it to say a big thank you to Arthritis care, for all of the help they have given me over this time, and the help they have given my family.

I was just wondering if any of you would support us, or like to give us a donation, how ever big or small, to arthritis care?

Thank you if you can.
Please see our website... We will keep updating it.... Its:

    Thank you all for your support!
    We did it! I can't actually believe it, and we also did it in just under 1hr 10mins! Which we can't believe as I didn't even think we would manage 1hr 30mins.... We didn't even stop once! Tehe.

    Had an amazing day, and was really spurred on by the support we had and the money that was raised!

    Was well worth all of the hard work and training!
