The Bloomington-Normal office of the Arthritis Foundation is celebrating 25 years of its annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk. We are grateful for the continued community support and the goal for our Silver Anniversary is 2500 participants in this year’s Jingle Bell Run!
The Jingle Bell Run/Walk is a nationwide event that kicks off during the holiday season. It is designed to raise awareness for America’s leading cause of disability, while raising the necessary funds for research, health education and government advocacy to improve the lives of people with arthritis. To celebrate the holiday season, participants tie jingle bells to their shoelaces, don festive holiday costumes and join friends and neighbors in support of the Arthritis Foundation’s mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis and its related diseases.
Bring your reindeer antlers, running shoes and holiday cheer to the 25th Annual Bloomington-Normal Jingle Bell Run/Walk taking place on Sunday, November 11th, 1 pm at Heartland Community College. To register online, form a team or for more information visit: www.jinglebellbloomington.org
This year’s Youth Honoree is Brianna Groth; a determined junior high school student who has decided that arthritis will not keep her on the sidelines. Read more about Brianna's story.
