I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis in November of 2020. From living life as a healthy 22 year old, it came as quite a shock to wake one morning in August with feelings of stiffness in my hands and fingers. This feeling of stiffness quickly progressed into my feet, and then to the surrounding areas of my body. By the end of September I was unable to perform simple tasks like walking down the stairs and making my bed without difficulty. Having used exercise as a way to improve my mental health during the ongoing pandemic, it has been difficult learning how to navigate the way my body operates now.
By donating to my fundraising page you will be helping raise money for The Dr.Bonnie Cameron Post-Secondary Scholarship to help an individual with arthritis pursue their post-secondary goals. Medication and treatment for arthritis can be extremely expensive, and this scholarship helps ease the burden of post-secondary tuition costs.
Please join me on this journey as I attempt running for the first time since my diagnosis.
Donate to help Alison raise money for Art In Motion 10K/5K/2K’s fundraising campaign.
