Sports: Tulsa Arthritis Jingle Bell Run

3

Two things draw Tulsans out of home on a frosty Saturday in December – the mad rush of Christmas shopping and the love of helping a good cause. In a way, the Tulsa Arthritis Jingle Bell Run has both Dec. 10. The Arthritis Foundation Eastern Oklahoma Chapter’s annual event is a run, a walk, parade and family fun all in one. Where else can you see people dressed as elves, wrapped presents and Christmas characters running or walking with their be-antlered canine pals? The spirit and mission is the same. The Jingle Bell run is a festive event bringing awareness to arthritis while raising money for research and public education of this common condition. What has changed, however, is the location. The run has moved to downtown Tulsa beginning at 1 p.m. at Tulsa Community College’s Metro Campus. www.arthritis.org
