Arthritis is one of the Ireland's largest causes of disability with symptoms ranging from the very mild to the severely debilitating. In many cases, arthritis pain and immobility prevents people from doing even the most basic of every day tasks.
A father who can no longer work to support his family with knees and hips rendered immobile. A mother who cannot pick up her child because her wrists and elbows no longer function. A child who cannot go to school or play with friends due to the unbearable pain and inflammation of her joints.
When you fundraise for Arthritis Ireland by taking part in a challenge, organising your own event or taking part in one of the events or campaigns we organise, you are helping ensure that people like those described above can access the support, help and information they need to manage their arthritis more effectively and have as normal a life as possible.
