The CCAA is funded solely by donations and as such every donation, no matter how big or small, is very gratefully received. Without these donations we would not be able to continue the work we do to support the children and families affected by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA).
All money donated or raised is spent directly on the children who suffer from JIA. Donations go towards arranging and funding our projects, especially our JIA Family Support Weekends and the Small Grant Awards that we provide for the children. The Family Support Weekends provide a unique opportunity for the children and their families to learn more about the disease, how to cope with it, and to meet other children and families in the same situation…as well as have a weekend full of fun!

Are you thinking of embarking on a personal challenge for CCAA? Maybe it’s a skydive, a mud run, a bike ride, a fun run, a truck pull (yes we have had that before!). Whatever the challenge is let us know we would love to hear about it. Take a look at some of the ideas we have had in the past.
A special occasion is a great way of raising awareness of a cause that is close to your heart. Maybe you would like people to donate instead of give gifts at your wedding, or you would like family and friends to give a gift of donation for your birthday. We would love to hear about it.
Would you like to support a loved one, commemorate a loved one or even celebrate a loved ones remission. It may be someone you know that has been affected by JIA, or they may be going through a difficult time with treatments. Set up your own special someone page.
Over the years our supporters have helped to raise money for for CCAA, which helps us to continue the support we provide to children suffering with JIA and their families.
Take a look at some of the previous and up and coming challenges and donations from our supporters so far this year.
