Young supporters run for us

Lucy and Oliver Cleveland
Five-year old Lucy and seven-year old Oliver Cleveland from Sidcup, Kent, put on their running shoes last month and completed a mile-long run to raise money for us.

They were following in the footsteps of their mother, Jane, who has taken part in 10k runs to raise funds for us over the past three years.

Lucy was diagnosed with juvenile ideopathic arthritis (JIA) when she was two. The family want to support our charity 'because it does fantastic work funding important research!'

As Jane explains, “We want to support a charity that helps to fund research into the cause, treatment and cure of arthritis so that children like Lucy can live a pain-free, active life.” 

The running duo raised a staggering £435.00. Thank you Lucy and Oliver!
