Jingle Bell Run/Walk is a fun, festive event
for the whole family! This is a great way to kick off the holidays by helping
others! Participants wear their reindeer antlers and/or themed costumes, and
tie jingle bells to their shoelaces and run or walk a 5 kilometer route with
their team members to celebrate the season by giving. This year there will also
be a 1k Childrens Run with the Elves, a costume contest, a post-event bash,
awards, prizes and giveaways.
Why? The prevalence of arthritis or chronic joint
symptoms is surging and affecting approximately 50 million Americans. Out of
that 50 million, 96,000 are residents of Washington, DC with 400 being
children. The Arthritis Foundation Jingle Bell Run/Walk raises awareness and to
help prevent, control, and cure arthritis and related diseases.
