Wear Purple for JIA 2019
2019 has been another amazing year for #WearPurpleforJIA. An incredible 80 schools and 31 companies took part, in addition to 15 healthcare professionals and all the individuals and families.
You climbed mountains, took on sports and fitness challenges, baked cakes and wore purple in dress-down days all to raise awareness of the disease and funds to support the JIA-at-NRAS services those affected rely on. We were overwhelmed by the creativity and the commitment shown by all who took part. Without your amazing support the valued JIA-at-NRAS events and activities to support children, young people and families would not be possible and it is because of you that so many people will have access to the information and support they need.
To date we have already banked over £36,000 and more is still coming in! Last year the funds you raised meant that JIA-at-NRAS was able to put on extra family days in Leicester and Exeter and expand the Bushcraft experience to those in York in 2019. Thank you for your commitment to #WearPurpleforJIA you really do make a difference!
