Jingle Bell Run

jinglebell5k

It’s been named one of the top ten themed races in America. We all know that we should be moving more, eating better and helping out our fellow humans, and  Jingle Bell Run/Walk  gives us a way to cover two out of three in a really fun way!

In case you haven’t heard, the Jingle Bell Run is a fun family event that is just kicking off in communities all over the country, from now until Christmas. If you raise funds (though sponsorship of your run) for the Arthritis Foundation, you’ll also be eligible for all kinds of cool prizes and swag. The run itself is fun too- participants are encouraged to dress up in Christmas themed costumes or tie jingle bells onto their running shoes. What a way to get into the spirit! Look at how much fun you could have:

You don’t even have to be a runner…. that’s why they call it the Jingle Bell Run/WALK. With events all over the country, there is probably one near you too, so what are you waiting for? Visit the Jingle Bell Run site to sign up or for more information. If you can’t run or walk in the race, you can still help!  Find a team in your area and contribute, fundraise or volunteer. Our run kicks off in a week, and we are still collecting donations as well.  If you’d like to visit our site, click here.

Jingle Bell Run- it’s a great cause, and a great time!  We hope to see you there, and don’t forget to post your pictures!

  2. I am going to look into a “walk” in my area. This sounds like a lot of fun and I already know the cause is great. I shared this on all of my social media accts (apx 30K people)…hopefully I can help bring more awareness.

    • Cheri, thank you SO much for the support and reposts/tweets/shares! Obviously this is a cause near and dear to my heart, but despite its prevalence it is very underrepresented with funding, publicity and therefore awareness. I’m trying my hand at the grassroots awareness approach, and getting people onboard like you (with 30k followers!) is a HUGE help! Thank you again!
