The 18th annual Jingle Bell 5k/1k run will include the 1k Fun Kids’ Run so more people can participate and enjoy the event, which is slated for Saturday, Nov. 21 in Sartell.
“Jingle Bell” raises money for Central Minnesota Toys for Tots, and all funds raised and toys purchased remain in the central Minnesota area.
Registration is open until Sunday, Nov. 8 to participate, and there is a registration discount if the participant donates a toy. After the Nov. 8 registration deadline, people can still register right up to the time of both events for a fee.
