Jingle Bell Run raises more than $73,000

$423,968 raised since the first event in 2011

PORT ORCHARD — The Jingle Bell Run staged Dec. 2 in parallel with Port Orchard’s annual Festival of Chimes and Lights, raised more than $73,000 for the Arthritis Foundation.

The amount raised exceeded the Jingle Bell Planning Committee’s goal of $60,000 for the event. From the time it was first staged in Port Orchard in 2011, a total of $423,968 has been raised for the foundation, said Sheila Cline, Arthritis Foundation development director for the Great West Region.

“The money raised will be used to help people with arthritis live better today and create better tomorrows through new treatments, better access to care and, ultimately, cures,” Cline said.
