Join Celebrities On The Amble For Arthritis
A 3 mile sponsored walk will raise funds & encourage sufferers to enjoy a walk
Arthritis Care is calling on people to Amble for Arthritis along London’s Embankment to help promote walking as a way to ease the pain of the country’s biggest single cause of physical disability. Arthritis means inflammation of the joints. Most people with arthritis will experience pain and difficulty moving around. Around 10 million people in the UK have arthritis. There are over 200 kinds of rheumatic diseases – the word rheumatic means aches and pains in joints, bones and muscles. Two of the most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
The three-mile sponsored walk will be starting in Victoria Embankment Gardens between Westminster and Embankment tube stations at 12pm, and finishing the other side of Tower Bridge. It is planned to be a fun event for people with arthritis and their friends and family to get involved.
Those interested in taking part in the Amble for Arthritis should contact Arthritis Care South England on 0844 888 2111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register their details.
Arthritis Care Week is the charity’s biggest fundraising event of the year. During the Week ambles will be taking place across the country. Funds raised will go to provide practical and emotional support for people with arthritis across the UK.
