DULUTH - More than 500 athletes laced up their shoes and put on a costume for a good cause on Saturday.
The 6th annual Jingle Bell Run in Duluth aimed to raise nearly $25,000 for people living with arthritis.
Organizers say attendance doubled in comparison to last year.
“Arthritis affects one in five Americans and we're raising money to go toward research, our programs and to better serve those living with this disease,” the community development manager Liz Truax said.
Awards were given to the top three male and female finishers and prizes were given for "best costume" and "most team spirit".
