Move Your Feet to a Jingling Beat

The Arthritis Foundation is calling for people to take action against arthritis by participating in the 2008 Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis. The annual nationwide event kicks off during the holiday season, raising awareness of America’s most common cause of disability, while raising desperately needed funds for research, health education and government advocacy to improve the lives of people with arthritis. To celebrate the holiday season, participants tie jingle bells to their shoelaces, don festive holiday costumes and join friends and neighbors in support of the Arthritis Foundation’s mission to prevent, control and cure arthritis and related diseases.

The area’s Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis has two events this year: Saturday, December 6 at City Park in Fort Collins AND Sunday December 14, 2008 in Washington Park in Denver.
