A 12-year-old boy from Medfield will serve as a youth ambassador for the 11th Annual Boston Arthritis Walk on Sept. 23.

Nicholas Papantonis has suffered from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since he was four years old. Last year, Papantonis was the top youth fundraiser for the walk, raising approximately $3,400.
