The holidays are just around the corner – and it’s your chance to impact the lives of millions of Americans with arthritis. By participating in the Arthritis Foundation’s festive Jingle Bell Run, you will join people from all walks of life to say Yes to furthering a great cause and being a champion for arthritis research. This annual event is a fun way to get out, get yourself and your furbabies moving and raise funds and awareness. Whether you prefer to walk or run, wear festive costumes or tie jingle bells to your shoes, this 5K is sure to spread smiles, holiday cheer and a winning spirit.

If you don’t want to participate in the walk/run, there will also be other fun festivities to kick start the holiday season!

  • Pictures with Santa
  • Hot Chocolate Bar
  • Kid’s Zone featuring face painting; ornament decorating; games
  • Costume competition (judging ends at 9:45AM) (Awards for best individual costume; best team costume; best ugly Christmas sweater; best pet costume.)
  • Warrior Zone – Inspiring stories of those living with arthritis; honoree nominations; ornament decorating and goodies for arthritis warriors.

You don’t want to miss out on a good time for a good cause!
