Welcome to the CARRA Virtual Team page!  We created this page for people who do not have a Jingle Bell Run in their local area or are unable to participate in their local event.

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!

“We know that our patients who get involved with the Arthritis Foundation do better. The Arthritis Foundation offers our patients and families valuable resources to help them along their journey and provides many opportunities to connect with other families who are just like them. Please join me in giving back to the Arthritis Foundation--for all they do for our patients and for CARRA-- by participating in your local Jingle Bell Run.”

--Rob Fuhlbrigge, CARRA President

Monies raised from the CARRA Virtual Team will be added to the overall fundraising goal of the CARRA National Team!
