The Richmond Arthritis Foundation will hold its 13th annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk Dec. 5 at Mary Munford Elementary, and Henrico resident Kyleigh Broomell will be the 2015 Youth Honoree.
Broomell loves to dance, swim and run; she also just learned how to roller-skate. But some mornings, the active eight-year-old doesn’t even feel like getting out of bed. For the past six years of her young life, Broomell has been living with juvenile arthritis.
Arthritis in its various forms affects one in five people in the U.S., and 300,000 of them are children like Broomell. > Read more.
