11-18-18: Jingle Bell Run, Dec 9th at Westlake Park, holiday fun & support of arthritis research

It’s about the Jingle Bell Run 2018! This major event, the largest Jingle Bell Run in the country, is critical in raising important funds for the work of the Arthritis Foundation. The amazing, Medical Honoree Dr. Laura Matsen Ko, started her involvement at age 8! Her orthopedic surgeon dad inspired her to follow in his footsteps, and now she performs hip and knee replacements, as well as working with persons living with arthritis to be able to live their best life. Adult Honoree, Laura Genovees was diagnosed at age 27, and now finds her mission to be advocacy and education, to help others who are living with this condition–that affects 1 in 5 people, not discriminating by age, or economics, or ethnicity. And Ashley Moise (mo-ease) is the Development Director for the local office of the Arthritis Foundation. She adds to the invite to join in–Sunday, December 9, Westlake Park–get those jingle bells ringing. This year a 12K has been added…but there’s something for everyone! And donate even if we can’t be there.
