As the holiday season approaches, we think about our blessings, our family, our success and our good fortune. We often think, too, of those less fortunate than ourselves and how we might, in our own way, make a difference in their lives. Almost 1.5 million Americans will have been diagnosed with cancer in 2011. Sadly, many families will be without a loved one for the first time this holiday season.

With these thoughts in mind, the 2011 Jingle Bell Run is proud to donate all proceeds from our event to the American Cancer Society‚Äôs Relay for Life and the Don DeLorenzo Scholarship Fund. It takes a lot of support and generosity to make such an event possible - whether it be monetary donations, donations of goods or services or a donation of your time.  All support is greatly appreciated and allows us to maximize our contributions.

 


All monetary contributions, no matter how small, are greatly appreciated, as they help to defray the costs of holding this event.

If you want to go that extra mile, a contribution of $300 qualifies you and/or your company as an official sponsor of the 2011 Jingle Bell Run.  As such, your name will be included in our advertisements, designated as an Official Sponsor on our website and will be printed on the race day shirts given to all participants.



Any and all donations of goods and services provided by your company are welcome.
Refreshments will be provided for the race participants, so we are always in need of these items (bottled water, fruit, snacks, coffee, donuts, cookies, pizza, sports drinks, etc.).  However, gift certificates and other merchandise are needed to include as prizes for race winners and other participants. All companies donating items will be listed on our website and acknowledged at the race site.

 


It takes a lot of people to make the Jingle Bell Run happen.  Volunteers are always welcome to assist with race day operations, including parking, registration, race monitors, kitchen help, load-in and tear-down and more.
