The Jingle Bell Run/Walk Returns to Assist All Affected by Arthritis

By  | 

THE WOODLANDS, TX – The 9th annual Jingle Bell Run is headed back to Rob Fleming Aquatic Center in The Woodlands this December.

Jingle Bell Run is a festive race for charity where participants can throw on their favorite holiday gear while racing to raise funds and awareness to cure America’s #1 cause of disability.

“We are so excited for this year’s Jingle Bell Run! As a runner myself, I look forward to this event every year. It’s amazing to see the community come together to support those with arthritis, and even more so to see our Arthritis Warriors out on the course – whether the 5k or the 1-mile – and of course the festive costumes and sweaters people show up wearing. This year, we have some new offers such as Santa’s Workshop photos and Gear Check for runners, which I think people will enjoy.” says Arthritis Foundation Development Director, Heather K. Weikum.

With a 1-mile Snowman Shuffle and 5k walk option, this event is open to all, including strollers, wheelchairs, and even your canine family members. There will be a variety of food options, coffee, and even beer from Spindletap Brewery for 21+ attendees following the event, along with a photo booth and giveaways.




The event will take place on December 14th with a warm-up beginning at 8:00 a.m. followed by the 5k and 1-mile start times respectively. All participants receive a medal and technical shirt. Registration is available online at and in person at packet pickup on December 11th and 12th as well as the morning of the event beginning at 7:00 a.m. For questions about the Jingle Bell Run, please contact Heather K. Weikum at or call (832) 975-1605.
