A FREE - FESTIVE- FUN RUN and fundraiser benefiting the Westchester Neighbors Food Pantry.
Started by a small group of friends who love to run, the Chesterton Christmas Eve Jingle Bell Run has grown into a BIG group of friends who love to run AND give back to the community.
Put on your most festive running clothes or just come as you are!
Participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items or new/unopened toiletries to be donated to the Westchester Neighbors Food Pantry. Cash donations to the food pantry will also be accepted, and anyone wanting a reciept for their donation will be given one.
ALL PROCEEDS GO TO CHARITY.
We will meet at the Red Cup Cafe, 115 Broadway, Chesterton - and run one or two 5K loops on a predetermined course. THIS IS NOT A RACE AND WILL NOT BE TIMED.
Registration will also be available (@ The Red Cup) starting at 7am Christams Eve and ending about 7:45am
If you want to walk that's fine! Just watch out and make way for the runners :) We want everyone to have a great experience!
If you bring your dog, make sure its on a reasonable length leash and friendly. Only bring your dog if its comfortable around others (whether the others are human or canine). If your dog gets nervous around crowds, it's best to leave Fido at home :) Dogs will not be permitted inside the Red Cup.
A limited number of Jingle Bell Run t-shirts will be available for purchase on the morning of the run.
