Countdown to RA Awareness Week

by Garreth


The countdown is well under way to RA Awareness Week, 16th-22nd June

This is the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society’s second awareness campaign and the theme for this year is ‘Invisible Disease’. We need your help to raise the profile of RA as much as possible to help us change the public perception of this often misunderstood condition. In the coming days, we will be sharing the activities planned for the week and do make sure you look out for the results of our fatigue survey on the first day of week.  To find out more and how you can get involved, please visit

Put your best foot forward for the Ramble:

With RA Awareness Week 2014 almost upon us we are asking you to take part in ‘The RAmble’. We need your help to raise the profile of RA as much as you can to change the public perception of this condition – the ‘Invisible Disease’.  We would like you to join us on Saturday 21 June in the beautiful grounds of Spetchley Park Gardens in Worcester (WR5 1RS) to take part in a 1 mile, 5 mile or wheelchair friendly walk (dogs are welcome on the 1 and 5 mile routes if they are well behaved and must be kept on leads at all times).

Registration is from 10am and all three routes will start at 11.00 am.  Entry to all three walks is £10, you will receive a goody bag which includes an NRAS t-shirt (children under 13 are free).  We do hope you can join us for what promises to be a great day.  For more information or an entry form please email or call 01628 501547.
