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.

On Friday, December 21 at 6pm, SOA is the title sponsor for the Lakewood Ranch 5K Jingle Run to be held at LWR Main Street. This is a family event and features almost 3,000 runners supporting the LWR Medical Center Nursing Scholarship Fund. With the aging population of Baby Boomers, there is a national shortage of nurses with the most intense deficiency found in the South. The 360-ORTHOPEDICS team, “Achy Breaky Bones” consists of 25 runners, including 360-ORTHOPEDICS physicians. Registration for the run is at www.TheJingle5k.org.
