2021 Jingle Bell Run Honorees


Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Youth Honoree  

You’d never know that five years ago, Payton was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). Her journey was a painful one full of questions, bloodwork, x-rays, swollen joints, MRIs and 3-6 month waiting periods just to see a doctor. Imagine your child barely able to walk – told to stop ALL activities, and then being told to wait 6 months to see a doctor. All because your 6-year-old may have arthritis. WHAT?! The Arthritis Foundation staff has been amazing and we are ready to JINGLE!
