Our story…

We're running for a pain-free future for kids! TRANSFORM KIDS’ LIVES WITH TEAM CASSIE AND FRIENDS Juvenile Arthritis is a painful, chronic disease impacting every 3 in 1,000 or 24,000 children in Canada. That’s just as common as Juvenile Diabetes and twice as common as cystic fibrosis - and yet receives far less attention and funding. We need your help to make sure no child is robbed of their childhood or future because of Juvenile Arthritis (JA) or any rheumatic disease! Join us as we run or walk virtually to raise awareness and funds for JA research, education, equipment and support.


Cassie + Friends Society is an organization 100% focused on transforming the lives of kids and families affected by Juvenile Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases. In 2019, our team broke a new record with over 350 runners raising an incredible $360,000 in support of a pain-free future for kids.

Join us on Team Cassie + Friends as we virtually run/walk to raise awareness and funds for JA research, education, equipment and support.

100% of the funds raised by Team Cassie + Friends go to our mission of transforming kids and families lives through research, awareness, connection and support. More specifically, your participation will go towards our annual Family Days, Teen Groups, school resources, equipment cupboards/family funds, advocacy and research.

In collaboration with our Charity Challenge Team in Calgary and nationwide participants, our goal is to collectively raise $240,000.
