CARRA is excited to be participating again in the Jingle Bell Run to support our partner, the Arthritis Foundation. The Arthritis Foundation has supported CARRA since it was founded in 2002 and has enabled CARRA to continue to grow and prosper. In 2015, CARRA and the Arthritis Foundation became major partners in support of expanded research efforts in pediatric rheumatic diseases. The CARRA - Arthritis Foundation partnership supports the CARRA Registry, provides important research development grants to our community, and facilitates our patient engagement programs. We are grateful for their partnership and generous financial support. By supporting our Jingle Bell Run team, you can help us give back and support the efforts of the Arthritis Foundation on behalf of our patients!
"As most of you know, arthritis has had a huge impact on my family when my son was diagnosed with JIA in 2001 when he was 15 months old. Now 21, my son is living his Yes! as a junior in college. We are very grateful for everything CARRA and the Arthritis Foundation has done to make this possible.
Please join me in supporting CARRA and the Arthritis Foundation's important, life-changing work."
Monies raised from the CARRA Virtual Team will be added to the overall fundraising goal of the CARRA National Team!
