Jingle Bell Run for Arthritis 5k

Sunday, December 4th, 2011 10:00 AM

Eddie and Theresa Tineo?s daughter Juliana, who celebrated her third birthday on Halloween, suffers from JRA - Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. In honor of Juli, several of their family members, friends, and co-workers are supporting the Running for Juli team! According to Theresa, ?Juliana was diagnosed at age one and the last two years have been a constant fight to get her symptoms under control. Unfortunately, this last year has proven to be the hardest yet and so we must continue to fight harder than ever for her. The Arthritis Foundation has been beneficial to us by providing invaluable information and resources to guide Juliana to resources that will help her and I would like to give something back to them. I am so blessed to have family and friends who, upon learning what Juliana is going through, want to help." And helping they are ? by joining Eddie and Theresa at the NYC Jingle Bell Run/Walk start line or making a donation in Juli?s honor! So far, Running for Juli has garnered eleven team members and raised more than $1,000 in the fight against arthritis!
