Kids get arthritis too

In their first year participating in the Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Jump, approximately 33 pre-schoolers jumped for arthritis at the Our Lady of the Lake Rev. Brown Preschool. The pre-school teachers hosted the event upon learning how one student is currently benefiting from treatments available for juvenile arthritis. Raising over $600, the preschool joined hands with the Arthritis Foundation, New Jersey Chapter to raise awareness that “kids get arthritis too.” On the day of the event the preschoolers wore jingle bells attached to their sneakers. They jingled and jumped on bubble wrap to the tune “Jingle Bell Rock” for three minutes.
