Proliance helps raise over $500,000 for the Washington Arthritis Foundation


Bone Bash and the Seattle Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis were a great success this year. Both events raised a total of over $500,000 to fund research and education for arthritis patients. As an annual sponsor of these events and with help from the Proliance staff, Proliance Surgeons has become a strong partner with the Washington Arthritis Foundation.

The 7th Annual Arthritis Foundation Bone Bash – Oct. 24, 2015

Bone Bash is a costume and black tie event that benefits the Arthritis Foundation. This year's event featured dinner, live music from the Groove Surfers, and both live and silent auctions. The purpose of the Bone Bash is to raise awareness of the prevalence and seriousness of arthritis and to raise funds for mission-driven programs. Funds raised support research to find a cure, provide public health and educational programs, fund Kids’ Camps and continue the Arthritis Foundation's advocacy efforts in the community.

Proliance Surgeons passes the torch to the next Outstanding Community Partner award winner, Wells Fargo.

Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis – Dec. 13, 2015

Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis is a fun and festive way to kick off the holidays by doing something good for others. For this annual event, team members dress up in holiday costumes and run or walk a five-kilometer route in downtown Seattle. Funds raised help to find a cure for arthritis, the nation's leading cause of disability. Nearly sixty members joined the Proliance Surgeons team this year, making a difference in the lives of more than 50 million adults and 300,000 children that suffer from arthritis.
