Nearly 40 million Americans have arthritis, and Kentucky ranks 2nd in the nation in the number of residents with the disease.
Runners from all over put on their Santa hats, laced up their shoes with bells, and took off in the first ever jingle bell run for arthritis.
Money from the Jingle Bell Run benefits the Arthritis Foundation to help with research and to develop treatments for the disease.
