I am so very honored to be the Arthritis Foundation’s 2022 Jingle Bell Run Community Champion Honoree!
My journey with the Arthritis Foundation began in 2004 when I was initiated into Alpha Omicron Pi. Since then, I have participated in multiple Walks for Arthritis, Strike out Arthritis Events, and the Jingle Bell Run. I began working closely with the Foundation in 2016 when I became the philanthropy chair for my local AOII Alumnae Chapter. With the innovative ‘Party with a Purpose’ cocktail and silent auction evening, we raised over $8,000 for the Arthritis Foundation. I then went on to serve as Board Chair of Arthritis Foundation Indiana and event chair of the 2019 Bone Bash. I’m excited to continue to raise awareness for this worthy cause as the 2022 Community Champion Honoree!
I hope you’ll join me in supporting the Arthritis Foundation for this fun and festive event in your city. You can attend in person, jingle in your jammies, or gift a donation! Wear your favorite holiday costume and spread good cheer for a great cause. We’re raising awareness and funds to support arthritis research for better treatments and a cure. We’re also helping the Arthritis Foundation develop tools, resources and opportunities to connect with each other. Together, we’re committed to conquering arthritis for good.
CHANGE THE FUTURE OF ARTHRITIS TODAY. Arthritis is the nation’s #1 cause of disability, affecting nearly 60 million Americans, including 300,000 children. Join a team, raise funds, and help us make a difference in their quality of life today and help researchers ultimately discover a cure.
This family-friendly, fun and festive race raises funds so the Arthritis Foundation can pursue a cure while providing life-changing information, resources and support for people with arthritis and their caregivers. Donating to the Jingle Bell Run supports this important work to conquer arthritis for good.
All we need is YOU to help our impact grow! I can’t wait to have lots of Daring Dashers
at the 2022 Jingle Bell Run!
