The event this year is to raise monies for JIA (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) This is the most common form of arthritis in children and adolescents, it is a relatively unknown condition, even though there are currently more than 12,000 children in the UK who suffer from the disease. JIA at NRAS (National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society) help support those living with the impact of JIA. For more details visit the website https://firstname.lastname@example.org
We are hoping to attract up to 150 participants, so come and join in the fun and support both our competitors and our chosen charity. Spectators, family and friends are welcome. We have various refreshments and a raffle.
Look forward to seeing you on the day.
