WORD Day 2022 update

WORD Day 2022 was bigger and better than ever before. You can read our full review here. Each and every person who got involved has helped to make a difference - thank you.

Our social media reach for Juvenile Arthritis Research alone was more than 113,000. We took part in both WORD Day webinars, a Twitch livestream event, and reached over 100 schools and educational settings with awareness-raising resources.

Whilst WORD Day may only be one day a year, remember that the powerful impact we can all have in our communities can continue all year round. 

Thank you for all your support! 

WORD Day 2021 update

Wow! What an awesome #WORDDay2021 with so many people getting involved from around the world. Thank you to everyone who took part and who shared our images, any of the WORD Day images, watched the WORD Day webinars and shared their own JIA stories on their own social media channels. 

Our posts alone had a reach of over 83,000 which is incredible for raising awareness of JIA and other rheumatic diseases in children. The impact of EVERYONE taking part together is far greater than this with all of the WORD Day ambassadors and the WORD Day team busy throughout the whole day.  We've added our new posts below as shareable links too so they can be easily shared.  As well as links to the podcast and video that we were interviewed for, we also had the opportunity to speak to fellow WORD day ambassador Joel Nelson and featured his interview on our website sharing his powerful JIA story. 

One Minute Briefs

Awareness campaign

In July 2021 we had the pleasure of teaming up with One Minute Briefs, to raise awareness of juvenile idiopathic arthritis and to encourage people to #ThinkJIA

You can find out more about the collaboration here. Please note that many of the designs are 'concept pieces' and not necessarily finalised - but are great for raising awareness.
