Can do challenge for Juvenile Arthritis
Living with the pain of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) can make every day a challenge. Thanks to Arthritis Queensland and Zoe's Angels, Caitlin Holder attended Camp Footloose in 2013 where she was inspired with a ‘can do’ attitude. In October Caitlin is taking on the ultimate challenge of jumping out of a plane to raise funds for Arthritis Queensland and awareness for JIA.
Zoe's Angels, donate to support kids with JIA today!
Zoe’s Angels raises awareness and funds for children with JIA, in partnership with Arthritis Queensland. Because of Zoe’s Angels, many Queensland children with arthritis have been able to attend Camp Footloose, where they have learnt ways to cope with their arthritis, whilst having fun and meeting other kids with the condition.
All Power to You! - Men with arthritis
The video, developed by Arthritis Queensland and the Queensland Men's Shed Association, and funded by the Metro North Brisbane Medicare Local Small Grants Program, was filmed at a Queensland Men's Shed. The featured men are entertaining and insightful as they share their stories, provide tips for living with arthritis, and have a laugh with each other.
New resource for kids, families, and teachers
The Bones and Joints School is a virtual and interactive portal for children, parents, and teachers, with resources that were developed in conjunction with the Australian School Curriculum. The website has modules and activities about healthy eating, exercise growth, and healthy bone and joint management. The online school is an intiative of Arthritis and Osteoporosis WA and was funded by Telethon.
