This run was a 5K that was held at Metropolitan Park downtown and raised funds for the Children's Home Society of Jacksonville. Everyone showed up in their pajamas, including Mrs. Tamburrino, and ran the race. At the one-mile mark, the race organizers had built a large gift box in which my students stood and sang carols as the runners jogged by. There were also several additional photo frames that had been been designed with various holiday themes in mind. You could stop, have your picture taken, enjoy a few holiday songs and be on your merry way. At the end of the race, you received a holiday mug filled with Starbucks hot chocolate. My students loved it and so did the runners!
Thanks for donating your time to spread a little holiday cheer!!
You are the best!!
"May your days be merry and bright" this Christmas Season.
Until next time...
