Ten charities to get $1,000 each from Saturday’s 10th annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk

Saturday, December 10th is the date for the 10th Annual Northfield Jingle Bell Run/Walk.

Jingle Bell Run WalkThe tradition of the Northfield Jingle Bell Run is that each year 100% of race registration fees go to a local non-profit organization. In honor of the 10th Anniversary of the event, a total of $10,000 will go to 10 worthy charities selected by 10 local groups. The exciting results will be announced on the day of the race.

They’re hoping that they’ll be one of the ten groups selected to designate a charity of their choice. I hope to have identified those groups by sometime tomorrow.
