3 more days to Jingle All the Way!

7th Annual Jingle Jog for Autism is so much more than a race!

 

On Saturday, December 8, the 7th Annual Jingle Jog for Autism will commence.  For the past 6 years, West Walton Park has played host to our annual fundraising event for children who have autism in our community and for the FACES support group to provide a quality summer camp for many.  This year, the event will be at Loganville High School instead.  Why....  we have simply outgrown the park... what a great problem to have!

By moving across Hwy 78 to 100 Trident Trail, aka LHS, we have ample parking for over 500 vehicles.  And from the looks of early registration, we are going to need them!  As of today, more than 400 individuals are registered for the 1 mile Reindeer Dash or the 5K, some running as individuals, others in families or teams, and many running in honor of a person or child with autism.

The Jingle Jog has become so much more than a run.  Thanks to more than 30 businesses, our holiday shopping area will be bustling for all your holiday needs. Each vendor pays a fee to set up at the event.  So even if you don't run, you can come shop and be a part of this annual event.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will be joined by the Brotherhood of the Sith Spire Star Wars team and ChickfilA Elf Cow at Santa's playland. Bouncer and slide, cupcake decorating, cotton candy, facepainting, crafts from Home Depot and other fun child friendly activities will be available. ChickfilA at Loganville will be set up to provide lunch for a fee, donating a percentage back to FACES for our camp programs.

Bring a NEW UNWRAPPED Toy to donate to FISH for Kids Christmas and donate $5 for a chance in a drawing for a free week vacation among a few other prizes.

It's going to be a great place to be on Saturday.  Come out around 10:30, register to run or just hang out.  Reindeer Dash begins at noon 5K at 12:30.  and it's over by 2!

See you with Bells On!!
