A Cowbit man who has continued to raise awareness of the debilitating condition he suffers with is urging people to join him in wearing orange.
James Wilson-White has continued the Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Awareness through his Racing 4 A Cure this year, despite the pandemic.
CRPS Awareness Month starts on Monday, November 2 with Colour the World Orange Day and James is urging you to get involved by wearing orange on the day.
“It’s been quite a struggle getting the message out this year,” he told The Voice. “But I’ve got some brilliant people who support me and I’m really grateful for everyone who has helped out.”
James’s initiative, CRPS Awareness Racing 4 A Cure, aims to raise the profile of the condition for which there’s no cure and slowly spreads through the body limiting mobility.
He also fund raises towards vital research.
The keen motorsport fan particularly spreads the word through the sport with rising Formula Four star Abi Pulling from Gosberton and EDF Motorsports among those to place his logo on their cars.
More of the logos for vehicles have been made available thanks to a grant from Spalding Round Table.
“I can’t thank them enough,” said James who himself was ill with suspected COVID-19 in March.
“Through the logo I’ve been able to get the brand on TV including in events such as the British Touring Car Championship and GT Cup.”
