Arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability. Nearly 1.4 million adults and 3,000 children in Indiana live with the disease. There is currently no known cure; however the Jingle Bell Run raises desperately needed funds for research, health education and government advocacy to improve the lives of people with arthritis.
