Jingle Bell Run/Walk to support the Arthritis Foundation

jingle bell run
I was watching New Day Northwest today and they had a great feature letting people know about Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.

If you've been reading the blog over the past year then you know that topic hits very close to home for my family as my niece actually suffers from it.

It was for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis that we formed Team Brooklynn this summer and raise over $7,500 for the Arthritis Foundation and the People's Coast Classic bicycle ride. The videos of our 6 day trip down the Oregon Coast are still up on Just South of North.

One of the guests on the show today was Scott Weaver of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation. I actually had the pleasure to meet Scott on the People's Coast Classic and he's a great guy.

The show also had on Nine-year-old Synnove Solberg who suffers from Juvenile Arthritis and I couldn't help but think of Brooklynn.

The segment was talking about the upcoming 26th annual Jingle Bell Run and Walk which benefits the Arthritis Foundation. The event happens Sunday, December 12th at Westlake Center in Seattle.

There's still time to register. You can visit the Jingle Bell Run/Walk site to sign up.

Hats off to Scott, the Arthritis Foundation, all the participants in the Jingle Bell Run and to the kids that keep fighting against this terrible disease.
