JA Days are a great experience for children with juvenile arthritis (JA), their parents, caregivers and siblings. The greatest benefit of these programs is getting to meet and network with other families who are affected by JA and share some of the same feelings, experiences and concerns. Meet other New England JA families while enjoying lunch and bowling at beautiful Splitsville Luxury Lanes located immediately adjacent to Gillette Stadium. Parents and kids will have plenty of time to network and make new friends.
