This holiday season, the sounds of thousands of bells rang through the Metuchen air on December 4th as runners in town tie jingle bells to their sneakers and joined in the Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis. The Jingle Bell Run/Walk is a national signature event for the Arthritis Foundation where thousands of people come together to run, walk and raise money to help fight Arthritis in more than 200 cities. However, it is more than just a 5k run/walk, it’s a festive, holiday-themed event with costume contests, dog walks, and kiddie runs with ol’ Saint Nick leading the way!

Missed the run? You can still help the Arthritis Foundation by purchasing a photo of a friend or family. Your purchase will not only make an excellent gift this season but also help the Foundation make a difference in the lives of nearly 50 million people who live with the daily pain of arthritis.
