The Jingle Bell Walk/Run got underway today, and raised awareness and money for Arthritis. Many people showed up, with the top team raising $3000 for the race. The event was put on by The Arthritis Foundation. The event brought together people from all walks of life and featured a costume contest, a coloring contest, and handed out running awards to runners of all ages.
People were encouraged to wear a holiday-themed costume, tie jingle bells to their shoelaces and wear ugly Christmas sweaters. Santa was there for pictures and to take gift requests from the kids. The event also features people living with Arthritis and featured speakers.
