Liz Brodie has been walking 500 miles on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in aid of Scottish Borders Versus Arthritis.
She has undertaken this challenge because her daughter was diagnosed with an inflammatory arthritis at the age of 16. Until this time she naively associated arthritis with older age and joint degeneration causing aches and pains. She now knows that it covers a range of conditions and causes not only extreme pain in joints and muscles but can affect other parts of the body such as the immune system thus having a much wider impact on the lifestyle.
She is aiming to raise £5000 and is on the last leg of her journey and 85% of the way to reaching her financial goal.
