Be there with bells on!
One month countdown: Join us Sunday December 14th, 2008- - Get in the spirit this holiday season at the Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis®. Be one of the thousands of runners and walkers who hit the nation’s pavements, pathways and parks this winter to fight arthritis, the nation’s most common cause of disability.
The Philadelphia Arthritis Association is joining forces for a thrid year with the Race Against Arthritis. Robert M. Ruggiero, M.D., orthopaedic surgeon in the Malvern area, initiated the Ruggiero Orthopaedics Race Against Arthritis nine years ago in an effort to raise fund for the Arthritis Foundation and improve arthritis awareness. Join his team or create your own to help make a difference in our community!
Jingle Bell Run/Walk® is a fun and festive way to kick off your holidays by helping others! Wear a holiday themed costume and join in the fun of our costume contest. Tie jingle bells to your shoelaces. Run or walk a 5 kilometer route with your team members and celebrate the season by giving. Bring along the children for the Kid's Fun Run a 1/4 mile loop around the track with Santa and don't forget that Dog's Get Arthritis Too! Pets are welcomed!
