Jingle Bell Run Held To Benefit Arthritis Research

MILWAUKEE - Arthritis is a disease that affects people at any age and it still needs a cure.

Joshua Dahlen was at the start of today's Jingle Bell Run. He was two years old when suddenly he couldn't walk. Josh is just one of 300 thousand in the country with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. But he and others helped the Arthritis Foundation by dressing up, participating in a 5k, and spreading good cheer.

"He is proof that kids get arthritis too. For the last four years, we've been coming out to help the arthritis foundation to raise funds to go to research to find a cure for Joshua," his family said.

In Wisconsin alone, 6 thousand children have Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.
