Nearly 3,000 people are expected to bring the holiday spirit when they “jingle all the way” to for the Arthritis Foundation’s annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk events.

Both sites will host a Kids Fun Run one hour before the 5K run/walk will starts at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and 11:00 on Sunday. Walkers and runners alike will be donning their most festive apparel – everything from bells on shoelaces to full holiday costumes. This 5K is sure to spread smiles, holiday cheer and a winning spirit.
The goal is to raise $175,000 dollars this Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis season to support the Arthritis Foundation’s life-changing tools, resources, science, and advocacy initiatives. The Foundation strives to help people live better while searching for a cure to the number one cause of disability in the United States, which affects more than 2.9 million Pennsylvanians.
