3rd Annual Jingle Bell Jog for the Hungry

Our 3rd Annual Jingle Bell Jog is right around the corner. This is one of my favorite events of the year. It is festive and fun - lots of people show up decked out with holiday spirit. The feeling of community and sharing fills the air.

Date: Saturday 12/15/12
Time: Run starts at 9:00AM
Location: The Mailroom - 156 North Trade Avenue, Landrum, SC
Entry Fee: Non-perishable food item(s)
Distance: Choose the 4 mile or 2.5 mile loop
Prizes: Random drawings for prizes - you don't have to finish first to win!

This is an important event for us because it serves to feed the hungry, specifically children. All food donations are going to the Tryon Elementary School backpack program. We are trying to do our part to help the where we can. The Tryon Running Club's motto is "Giving Back One Step at a Time". Help us do more!

There are so many heartbreaking statistics about all the children living in poverty. Take some time to check out this article and video on PBS - Childhood Poverty in the US.

Bundle up, grab your Jingle Bells and join us!!!
