Andie has lived with rheumatoid arthritis since she was just nine years old.
"I cant really remember life without arthritis, or 'Arthur' as I call him."
But she has never let it shake her positive outlook. A self-described rock-chick and gypsy, Andie decided that Move it in May was the perfect opportunity for her to get involved with a cause she is passionate about.
Andie is already and active member of the Arthritis Queensland community. She's even one of the original member of the Swell Gals Facebook support group.
Andie credits a healthy lifestyle and a strong support network as her secret to living well with arthritis.
"I'm one of the lucky ones who can get out and about, i'm happy to challenge myself to move a tad more in May and raise money for and awareness of a good cause at the same time."
And she has set herself a big challenge. This May Andie has committed to walking at every lunch break at work, walking 7km from work to home one a week, plus she's getting off the bus a stop early a few days a week too. On top of all this, she's also doing Pilates every Saturday!
She's already raised and incredible $530 and smashed her original fundraising goal.
"My hope is that in the near future no one, especially not little kids, has to live with the pain and debilitation of arthritis."
