Jingle in your Jammies
Lipscomb University to host Jingle in your Jammies Event on November 30th
By Bethany Hertrick and Jaisie Castellon
Nashville, TN- On November 30th, 2012 Lipscomb University will hold Jingle in your Jammies, a fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation. Arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability. In Tennessee alone, more than 1.2 million adults and nearly 6,000 children have a doctor-diagnosed form of arthritis.
Jingle in your Jammies is a one-mile run/walk hosted by Lipscomb after the Lipscomb University vs. Tennessee Tech men’s basketball game. Participants of the run/walk receive free admission to the game and can enjoy a health screening hosted by the College of Pharmacy, milk and cookies with Santa, and a t-shirt. Free registration to the 5K Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis ® on December 1st is also included. Participants are encouraged to wear their favorite winter pajamas during the basketball game and the one-mile run/walk. Immediately following the run/walk, “Elf” will be shown in Allen Arena to sit back, relax and enjoy the Christmas atmosphere.
Exercise can provide relief from pain, improve physical function and quality of life, and delay the onset of disability without worsening symptoms or the progression of the disease for some forms of arthritis. The 5K Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis ® is a national event when thousands of runners and walkers come together to fight arthritis. This run will be held in Franklin on Saturday, December 1st.
