After four and a half days of cycling, the Össur UK staff made it to Iceland! In order to raise awareness and money for Arthritis Research UK ,the team shared the 1018 miles distance between the UK office and the Össur head office in Reykjavik. Last week was National Arthritis Week, with this year’s focus on Pain. ARUK were looking at the pain that sufferers of arthritis endure and ways to reduce this. The week was full of activities and fundraisers around the country as well as the Marketplace 2014 event in Nottingham, giving designers and innovators a platform to share their ideas and gain information on getting to market.

Össur have a strong relationship with ARUK, helping to fund research centres in Leeds and Oxford, and provide clinically proven solutions for knee osteoarthritis with the Unloader One. The UK staff threw themselves into the challenge of completing 1018 miles during the week and covering the distance to Reykjavik. At the time of writing almost £650 has been raised for the charity and donations are still welcome at https://www.justgiving.com/OssurUK/

A huge congratulations to all the staff who took part and helped this excellent cause. And a massive thank you to everyone who has donated. Arthritis Research UK really do change lives and the money is well used.
