We are aiming to smash last year amount of $105,000.00 in memory of a beautiful and brave little boy, William Harris. At only 6 years of age, William succumbed to an infection related to his Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). This debilitating condition causes so many children so much pain and prevented William from ever crawling or walking properly. William’s parents want their little boy to be remembered and to help to raise awareness that children also suffer from arthritis. To read William’s story, click here.
Over 6,000+ Australian children suffer from JIA and often feel alone, wondering why other children can run, jump and play when they are unable to. The funds raised from William’s Walk go directly to increasing children’s confidence and self-esteem, developing sporting and motor skills and give them the opportunity to gain control over JIA and their lives.
