Can you walk for 15 minutes? Do you know anyone with arthritis? Have you ever wanted to participate in a community activity that is fun, good exercise and for a great cause? If the answer to any or all of theses questions is ‘yes!’ join the Orthopedic Institute of Pennsylvania staff, family and friends on December 14th for the 2013 Arthritis Foundation Jingle Bell Run/Walk. If you can walk for 15 minutes, you’re a third of the way there. Increase your walking time by 5-7 minutes each week and you can complete a 5K walk by race time. Don’t worry about distance; go for increasing your time. If you can slowly and consistently increase the amount of time you walk, the distance will be there. What a great way to stay in shape during the holidays and join your OIP partners in bone health to support continued research for arthritis. Sponsored by Pinnacle Health, Genetech, yours truly, and many other amazing organizations who want to raise support and raise awareness of arthritis. Wear a holiday themed costume. Tie jingle bells to your shoelaces. Raise funds to fight arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability. Run or walk the 5 kilometer route with OIP and celebrate the season by giving. For the first 50 signees, OIP will provide you with an OIP Arthritis Department T-Shirt.
