Do I have to fundraise?
The purpose of this Orange County/Inland Empire holiday tradition is to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation. While there is no fundraising minimum, we highly encourage each registrant to raise a minimum of $150. Participants can do this using their online fundraising headquarters, which is automatically created at the time of registration. Other fundraising ideas are a letter writing campaign, jeans day at work, garage sales, bake sales and more!

How do I turn in my donations?
Any donations that are not made online can be sent to:
Arthritis Foundation
4701 Von Karman #100, Newport Beach, CA 92660

Please note that in your personal fundraising HQ (online) you have the opportunity to enter these donations as pledges. This allows for all donations to be added to your fundraising total immediately. If you have questions, please email us. Last minute donations can also be turned in on race day at the registration booth.

Are dogs allowed?
Yes! Leashed dogs are welcome!

Is there a Costume Contest?
Yes! Come dressed in your best holiday costume! There will be a prize!

If my child is participating in the Kids' 1k Fun Run, do I need to register for the Kids' 1k Fun Run as well?
No - if your child is participating in the Kids' 1k Fun Run and you would like to escort them, you do not need to register for this event. However, if you would like to participate in the 5k event or/and would like an event t-shirt you will need to register as an adult for the Jingle Bell Run.

Are there awards for top finishers?
Medals will be awarded to all 5k participants. Additional medals will also be awarded to the top three finishers in each division.

Are registration fees refundable?
No, if you are unable to attend the Jingle Bell Run (for any reason), your registration fee will be considered a donation to the Arthritis Foundation and you can still pick up your shirt at the Foundation office.

Can I exchange my shirt for a different size?
Yes, on the day of the event before the run. You will be provided with the size requested during registration and we must do the same for everyone. Please understand that we do not order many extra shirts and sizes will likely be limited. Unfortunately, we are not able to absorb the cost of shipping to exchange shirts before the event.

You didn't answer my question - what next?
