About This Activity

The Jingle Bell Run/Walk is a national event for thousands of people who come together to run, walk and raise money to help fight arthritis. Yet, the Jingle Bell Run/Walk is more than just a race. It is a fun, festive morning that brings together competitive runners, joggers, walkers and families to kick off the holiday season and celebrate the spirit of helping others.

More than 50 million adults (one in five), including 300,000 children have arthritis. Two-thirds of adults with arthritis are under age 65. Chances are almost everyone knows someone living with the disease.  Arthritis is also expensive; it is one of the most costly conditions billed to private insurance.

While you are running, walking and having fun, you're raising awareness of arthritis and helping the Arthritis Foundation raise money to find a cure and change lives.

So, tie bells to your sneakers, wear a costume if you’d like, and get on your mark at the Jingle Bell 5K Run/Walk. Run or walk on your own or form a team with friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers, and help raise money to fight arthritis, the nation’s #1 cause of disability. Get in the holiday spirit and enjoy all of the features the Jingle Bell 5K Run/Walk has to offer!
