2010 Jingle Bell Run/Walk
Raleigh, NC
Saturday, December 4, 2010
Saint Mary's School
900 Hillsborough Street
Raleigh, NC 27603

The Jingle Bell Run/Walk is for Arthritis, a 5K fun run/walk to benefit the Arthritis Foundation. Arthritis affects more than 46 million Americans, including 300,000 children, costing the U.S economy over $128 billion annually.

Founded in 1948 and headquartered in Atlanta, GA, the Arthritis Foundation has multiple service points located throughout the country. The mission of the Foundation is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.

We're the largest private, not-for-profit contributor to arthritis research in the world, funding more than $380 million in research grants since 1948. Together, volunteers and staff have helped individuals take control of arthritis by:

providing public health education
pursuing public policy and legislation
and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis.


There are several volunteer opportunities avaliable.


Please email me if you are intrested in any of these volunteer opportunities.
