Jingle All the Way … to the Square

Robert Goodner, Staff Writer

Allen County Thrive is looking for participants and volunteers for its 15th-annual Jingle Bell Jog on Dec. 24.
The 5K run/3K walk, which starts on the Iola Square, will be on Christmas Eve day, and late registration will begin at noon. The race will take place at 1 p.m.; the fee is $15 for runners and walkers, who will also receive a long-sleeve T-shirt and jingle bells for their shoes. For $20, runners can get a high-tech dry-fit shirt instead. Refreshments and treats, including water, hot cocoa and gingerbread, at the finish line.
Those interested in volunteering to help with set-up or during the event may call (620) 365-8128. For more information on the event, go online to www.thriveallencounty.org.
