2021 Run/Walk to Milwaukee Irish Fest Honorees


Victoria Anderson
Systemic Juvenile Arthritis
Young Adult Honoree

People think that only ‘old’ people can get arthritis but that’s not true. When Victoria mentions she has Systemic Juvenile Arthritis, people only see a happy smiling kid that couldn't possibly have anything wrong with her. When in school her arthritis would flare up and other kids would be jealous of the fact that she could nap during the school day, and often leave school early. What they didn't know was that her body was fighting itself and she needed naps during the school day and, she left school early to go to doctors appointments.

Arthritis makes living life harder, but not impossible and educating others that Kids Get Arthritis too, helps lessen her struggle.
