I have arthritis in my spine and right ankle i use to get about in an electric wheelchair when I go out but now i use a rollator and im doing 5k for cancer in june at Kempton Park i guess anything is possible if you put ur mind to it. Still in a lot of daily pain but i did fall 46 feet out of a window 8 years ago so i guess its a small price to pay for being alive

    Hi @Belinda_larkins welcome to the community! Wishing you all the best for the 5K! I am hoping to practise walking with a rollator soon, I am nervous though!
