Wed 23 Apr WILLIAM'S WALK (NSW)
Come along to William�s Walk on Sunday 23 March 2014 and have a great day out with your family and friends while helping support children living with arthritis and their families. This isn�t just a walk, this is a day packed full of fun! There will be demonstrations, music, activities, food and stalls to suit all ages. You will be sure to find something for everyone. The course starts and ends at Pavilion Flat at Parramatta Park and you can choose to walk 5km or run 8km, depending on your ability and fitness level. The runners kick things off at 9am and the walk commences at 10.30am. The run will take approximately 40 mins, with the walk taking between 60-90 mins. We are aiming to raise $100,000 in memory of a beautiful and brave little boy, William Harris. At only 6 years of age, William succumbed to an infection related to his Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). This debilitating condition causes so many children so much pain and prevented William from ever crawling or walking properly. William�s parents want their little boy to be remembered and to help to raise awareness that children also suffer from arthritis. Over 4,000 Australian children suffer from JIA and often feel alone, wondering why other children can run, jump and play when they are unable to. The funds raised from William�s Walk go directly to increasing children�s confidence and self-esteem, developing sporting and motor skills and give them the opportunity to gain control over JIA and their lives. You can make a big difference in a little person�s life. contact: Elise Coran. email: ecoran@arthritisnsw.org.au. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
