Jingle bells, reindeer antlers, Christmas scarves and even a visit from Old Saint Nick made this year’s annual Arthritis Foundation’s 5K Jingle Bell Run/Walk an event to remember. And Team MPHC was there! Literally with bells on!
We met bright and early on the crisp December 5th morning, ready to Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell walk to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation. For more than 20 years, thousands of runners in cities across America have gathered together in colorful clothes and tinkling bells to raise funds an awareness for conditions that affect hundreds of thousands of people, and Team MPHC was proud to be there.
After running more than three miles and raising over $400, Team MPHC finished with an average time of 25.4 minutes! Adding our efforts to the total, the Arthritis Foundation raised over $63,000! What a day! Congratulations to all the men, women, children, families and friends who came out to make the day a great success, not only for the Arthritis Foundation, but also for the thousands and thousands of people who will be helped by their efforts!
