For more than four decades, Arthritis Ireland has been committed to serving those living with arthritis and improving their quality of life. With recent figures indicating that more than one million people in Ireland live with the disease, the need for sustained support is essential.

This Giving Tuesday, Arthritis Ireland is highlighting the stories of inspiring fundraisers whose contributions have made a difference to the lives of those living with arthritis. Peter O’Rourke is one such individual. Peter’s mother, Mary, lived with rheumatoid arthritis for more than 15 years, and sadly passed away in January 2022.

Inspired by National Arthritis Week, the O’Rourke family decided to complete the Great Limerick Run in 2022 and 2023. They raised more than €11,500 to support vital research efforts that will improve the lives of people living with rheumatoid arthritis in Ireland.

Gráinne O’Leary, CEO of Arthritis Ireland, emphasises just how essential such fundraising efforts are for the organisation.

“It is so important for us to recognise the amazing fundraising efforts of every individual who chooses to give to Arthritis Ireland. We are truly grateful to have such dedicated supporters of the organisation, who make a difference in so many lives.”
