RICHMOND, Va. — Grab your Christmas costume or your workout clothes and help find a cure for arthritis Saturday at the Jingle Bell Run.
The 5-K fun run and walk will benefit the young and old in Central Virginia.
Eight-year-old Kyleigh Broomall, who was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis when she was two years old, is one of the people who will be walking for a cure.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, there are 300,000 children like Kyleigh in the U.S.
Kyleigh and her family said it is important to bring awareness so they can help find a solution.
“Then the people with arthritis could be cured and feel much much better,” Kyleigh said.
The run starts at 8 a.m. at Mary Munford Elementary School.
The goal is to raise $45,000 this year. Right now the arthritis foundation is less than $5,000 short of the goal.
