Welcome to #WearPurpleforJIA 2019!

JIA-at-NRAS was overwhelmed by all the amazing individuals, families, healthcare professionals, schools and companies who took part in #wearpurpleforJIA in 2018. Together you donated an amazing £50,000 as well as raising valuable awareness about Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) and its impact on all those affected by the condition. The funds you raised in 2018 will be used by JIA-at-NRAS to provide Family Days, Bushcraft Days, a Children’s pop-up book to help parents and healthcare professionals educate younger children about the condition and two video animations for young people which addresses the important topics of mental health, fatigue and parenting. NRAS will also be hosting another Healthcare Champions Event in parliament so you can honour the healthcare professionals who you feel do an amazing job supporting your child with their JIA. 

This year we know that you with your family, your school or employer will make #WearPurpleforJIA the biggest and best campaign ever! We are so excited to work with you to continue to raise vital awareness about the condition and the funds you raise this year will enable JIA-at-NRAS to continue to support everyone who needs us.

Soon we will have our new fundraising and awareness raising packs ready for you to order with lots of goodies to help you with your important role in the #WearPurpleforJIA 2019 campaign. There will also be lots of fun, new purple merchandise to order and JIA-at-NRAS staff and volunteers will be available to support you if you need help planning your campaign, event or activity.

Without you #WearPurpleforJIA would not be the success it is and we thank you for your continued interest, energy and enthusiasm and for making this campaign better and better each year.
