Don your bells, your Christmas gear and take a run with Santa as the 7th annual Jacksonville Jingle Jog is back! Presented by CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Jacksonville, Jingle Jog proceeds help fund the Rotary Club of Jacksonville scholarship program, benefiting Jacksonville High School seniors.

Last year, a donation of $6,000 helped deserving students continue their education.

“I realize the importance of being actively involved in our local community and giving back whenever and however possible,” said Barry Lofquist, administrator for CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Jacksonville. “This event gives us the opportunity to do just that – give back to the community that has been so good to us.”

The race will take place this year in downtown Jacksonville, located at 218 E. Commerce St.

Registration for the Jingle Jog is now open and racer packet pickup begins on Friday, Dec. 8 from 4-7 p.m. at the CHRISTUS Fitness Center in Jacksonville (2010 S. Jackson St.).

Day-of packet pickup will begin at 7:30 a.m. at the race site. Local vendors will be on site and Santa is expected to arrive via fire truck and will be available for pictures for all those in attendance.

The kids dash will begin at 9 a.m. with the 5K beginning immediately after.
