Team EFC Runs for Those Who Can't
Raises $3,525 for a Cure at 2015 Jingle Bell Run

LINK TO THE TEAM EFC JBR SITE TO MAKE A DONATION TO THE ARTHRITIS FOUNDATION.

(Dec 14, 2015)  "Team Eastside FC had loads of fun in the festive 5K in Seattle on Sunday morning," said Team Coordinator Susanna Wilken of the club's fourth year participating in the Jingle Bell Run sponsored by the Arthritis Foundation. In fact 71 runners donned EFC gear, including festive club scarves, antlers and Santa hats, to jingle their way down the streets of Seattle while raising $3,525 so far to help fund a cure for the debilitating joint disease that affects 50 million men, women and children in the US. (See video.)

"It's not too late to make a donation," says Wilken who has organized our Team all four years. "You can still donate through Team EFC for Arthritis Foundation research through December 31st." 

"We're proud to be able to run for those who can't," one young runner told us after the race. It's certainly in keeping with the spirit of the holidays. We hope this is a tradition Eastside FC players and families can continue for years to come.
