Sarasota, FL, November 29, 2018 – 360-ORTHOPEDICS is proud to announce their support of two important non-profit organization events to be held in December. They are the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center Nursing Scholarship Fund and the Arthritis Foundation.

On Saturday, December 15, the 360-ORTHOPEDICS team “Achy Breaky Bones” will sponsor the “Jingle Bell Run” at Benderson Park to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation in their quest to find a cure. Forty million people in the United States have some form of arthritis. This year, the Medical Honoree of the Arthritis Foundation is Jeffrey Silverstein, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with 360-ORTHOPEDICS, who has committed to champion this cause.

This is a family event and features almost 3,000 runners supporting the LWR Medical Center Nursing Scholarship Fund.
