Jingle Bell Run

Up above there is Bow Jingles, the official mascot of the annual Jingle Bell Run hosted by the Holiday Inn at Westgate Mall in Brockton, MA. The Jingle Bell Run isn't really a run per se; there are no awards for first place and I'm not even sure if the event is timed. What it is is a party on the run. It's only about two miles long but there is a "water" stop. Sure, you can get water but you can imbibe other libations there as well. Hence, the party atmosphere. The Jingle Bell run, which is organized by my father, is, in its essence, a great fundraiser for the Helping Hands fund. Because the run has no overhead costs, thanks in large part to my dad's relentless efforts, 100% --yes 100%-- of the race's proceeds go to charity. On top of that, the event has a pipe and drum band, all the free food you can eat (good unhealthy stuff too: pizza, chicken fingers, sweets) and a great raffle. So, if you're looking for something to do this Saturday afternoon (race starts at 1 pm), put on your best elf costume and head over to the Jingle Bell Run.
