Event Information

The Arthritis Foundation’s original Jingle Bell Run is a fun way to get decked out and be festive, while racing to raise funds and awareness to cure America’s #1 cause of disability. Have fun dressing up your dog for the event as well. Dogs on a leash are welcome and encouraged to attend – they get arthritis too!
