Do a good deed not only for others but for yourself as well this Holiday season at the Jingle Bell Run/Walk to benefit Arthritis. The goal for this year’s Run/Walk is $45,000 in donations to maintain and initiate new research into Arthritis, the most prevalent disabling disease in America, and the goal is almost met.
The Run/Walk begins at 8 AM Saturday, December 12, 2015 at the John and Mary Silverthorne Arena at Stephens College. Participants have two choices of distance to run/walk: 5K route and 1 mile route. For information about the routes, please click here.
To pick up registration packets before-hand, they will be available Friday, December 11, 2015 at Stephens College – Silverthorne Arena – 141 Dorsey Street, Columbia, MO from 2:00pm – 7:00pm, or Saturday from 6:45 AM to 7 AM before the event. The Run/Walk has been recognized as one of the “Most Incredible Themed Races”, meaning participants provide the theme! Festive attire related to the Holiday season is requested, so get as spirited as you wish with Jingle Bells and any other holiday-related costumes!
So come by yourself or get your team together and help raise funds for a very worthy cause and improve your own health at the same time!
