On Sunday 30th of August I'm doing the Oylegate 10km for Arthritis Ireland

If you could donate to this cause I would really appreciate it

What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a condition that makes the joints in your body become inflamed, causing pain and stiffness. It is the second most common form of arthritis.

It is known as an auto-immune condition, which means that the immune system, the body's natural self-defence system, gets confused and starts to attack your body's healthy tissues. In rheumatoid arthritis, the main way it does this is with inflammation in your joints.


As most people know my dad Thomas, suffers from this horrible disease and will continue to for the rest of his life
