Rebound to Raise Funds for 23rd Annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis

Share Button

It’s that time of year again…time to don your jingle bells and help Rebound raise funds for Arthritis Foundation of Oregon! This is our fourth year to sponsor and participate in the annual Jingle Bell Walk/Run for Arthritis, a spirited holiday event that raises funds to help cure arthritis.

Arthritis Affects Oregonians Daily

Did you know one in every four Oregon residents struggle daily with arthritis? At Rebound, we see many patients suffering from arthritis and know the toll the disease can take on the body, in addition to how it affects a patient’s quality of life. That’s why we want to do our part to support important research that focuses on finding a cure for this debilitating disease.

How Can I Get Involved?

We want to make a bigger difference, but we need your help. Our goal is to raise $2,000 and recruit 60 team members. We’d love to have our patients, friends and family on our team as we fight for this important cause. You can help with the cause by donating, joining our team, or by doing both!

About the Event – The Nation’s Largest Holiday 5k

The festive 5k is a great opportunity to help out the community, be active and get into a giving, holiday spirit. Whether you’re running or walking, you’re making an impact- all ages and folks of all athletic abilities are welcome. There’s even something for the kids! Children can participate in the 1k Fun Run with the Elves.

 

The 23rd Annual Jingle Bell Walk/Run for Arthritis will be held Sunday, Dec. 7, in downtown Portland. The race starts at the World Trade Center. All portions of the event will be chip-timed (5k run, 5k walk, 1k kids run). See more here, or watch this video about the event.

Join our team, tie bells to your shoes, dress in a festive costume and help us cure arthritis! Together, we can make a difference for more than 50 million adults and 300,000 children that suffer from arthritis pain and disability.
