Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Run Calls Westchester to Raise Awareness for the No. 1 Cause of Disability Arthritis

More than 54 Million Americans live with arthritis including 7 million people in in the Northeast Region

 

Westchester – The 2018 Jingle Bell Run for arthritis is bringing holiday cheer to Westchester on Saturday, December 8th with the goal of raising $129,150 this year. As over a thousand people gather at Purchase College to join the movement to conquer arthritis, this annual, holiday-themed 5K run, or optional one-mile walk, encourages participants to dress in festive costumes and get moving to raise awareness and funds to cure America’s #1 cause of disability.

Taking place in more than 100 cities nationwide, the Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Run benefits the more than 54 million Americans (1 in 4 adults), including 300,000 children (1 in every 250), living with arthritis every day. From funding cutting-edge research for new treatments and ultimately a cure to advocating for health care access, the Arthritis Foundation helps those living with arthritis score everyday victories, one step at a time.

“Jingle Bell Run is as annual tradition in Westchester and known nationally as the original festive race for charity,” said Jaclyn Renner, Development Director. “Our honorees and volunteers are what make this event successful and memorable every year, and this year we’re humbled to honor Margaret Carey and Avery Etman who are true Arthritis Warriors and continually commit their time to raising awareness and funds for our cause.”

The Jingle Bell Run is nationally sponsored by AbbVie, CVS Specialty and Cheribundi. To learn more and register for the Westchester event, visit www.jbr.org/Westchester , or contact the Arthritis Foundation at 917-794-2638.

The ACM is the only organization representing museums and professionals dedicated to early childhood play, the starting point in the continuum of lifelong learning. ACM collects data and trends, underwrites scholarships, and advocates by educating elected officials and stakeholders about children’s museums’ impact on children, families, and communities. ACM and its member organizations work together to identify major issue areas in which children’s museums can and are making a difference in the lives of children and families, including health, multicultural awareness, access, and the importance of play.

Focusing on equal access to early learning opportunities, the museum and its sponsors have provided free memberships to low income families. MHCM is the first children’s museum in the entire nation to host a public farmer’s market, filling a need for fresh, good-quality food and produce in the city of Poughkeepsie, a USDA designated “food desert.”

Kenfest started in their back yard for their musician friends and they jokingly named it Kenfest. A friend built a stage that grew in size each year and last year it was 3 tiers and 36 feet long. As the word of this great event spread, Kenfest 2016 entertained over 200 people and it has now outgrown their backyard. Last year the donation to MS was one of the highest in the Southern New York Chapter and with the move to Palaia Winery, they raised over $7500 last year. Bring a chair or blanket and join Ken, Linda and a host of great local bands for a day of music, huge raffle, vendors on the lawn, wine, beer, wine slushies and food. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, all sponsorships will include a sign on the stage and free admission for two. The winery will be open from 11-10pm as Palaia joins the Nicastros in their efforts to raise money for MS.
