Going the distance – Raj Mahapatra on where he found the strength to overcome AS and keep setting himself new challenges

For World AS Day 2018 Raj Mahapatra, ASIF Trustee, spent a couple of days making a video with Novartis for This AS Life

With determination, clear goals and the help of his friends and family, Raj went the extra mile – literally – to defy his AS and achieve his exercise, work and life objectives. Watch now and find out how. Choose Your AS Future!
