SANTA AND VOLUNTEERS will greet you at the annual Jingle Bell Charity Run

Everyone will be a winner at the upcoming Jingle Bell Charity Run, especially the Comox Valley Food Bank and its patrons.

Organized by the Comox Valley Road Runners, a local running club, the event stresses fun not competition, with prizes and goodies for participants of all ages. In addition there are prizes for the best poker hand that you and a partner collect from card dealers on the various routes.

The run will be held at Seal Bay Park this Sunday, with registration from 10 to 10:30 at the Bates Road entrance. The entrance fee is $5 plus a non-perishable food donation, all to be passed along to the food bank.

There are three options for participation: a seven-km walk starting at 10:30; a seven-km run starting at 11; and the three-km poker run (or walk) starting at 11. Dress warmly and carpool if possible.

For more information, call Sam or Brooke at 250-339-4542 or check out www.cvrr.ca. Volunteers are always welcome.
