Welcome Jo’s Jinglers! Once again, we are rallying our teams across the nation in support of the Arthritis Foundation’s work to find better treatments and a cure for arthritis.
You may or may not know that my journey with arthritis began at the young age of 9 years old when I was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). Arthritis can be difficult to diagnose, especially in children. My symptoms began 2 years before diagnosis and most of my joint damage occurred during this time before I began receiving treatment. Today, the arthritis is under control thanks to much more effective medications, even though the damage to my joints causes limitations.
This year will mark the 24th year that we are participating in the Jingle Bell Run and our team goal is $20,000! Join us this year and continue jingling to find a cure! You can also form a Jo Jingler's team at your local Jingle Bell Run - register or donate today!
