Jingle Bell Run helps food bank

Annual Road Runners' fun event goes Dec. 8 at Seal Bay Park

 

 

 

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, 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 on Sunday, Dec. 8, with registration from 10 to 10:30 a.m. 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 7K walk, starting at 10:30; a 7K run starting at 11, and the 3K 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 the Road Runners website www.cvrr.ca. Volunteers are always welcome.

“So, get your Santa hat and festive bells out of storage early and bring them along to join in the fun – all for a good cause,” an event spokesperson said.
