Advocates for Children Hosts Inaugural Jingle Jog

The 1.4-mile fun run for all ages and levels of runners precedes Cartersville's Christmas parade and benefits Advocates for Bartow's Children.

Advocates for Bartow's Children is tying on jingle bells to host its first-annual Jingle Jog fun run in Cartersville in December. Partnering with the Cartersville Exchange Club, runners will lead the Cartersville Christmas parade along the parade route and then settle in with thousands of onlookers to ring in the holiday season.

Sponsored by Gary Fox, CPA and McDonalds, Jingle Jog is a 1.4-mile fun run for all ages and levels of runners. Participants are asked to dress up in their wackiest holiday gear and prizes will be awarded to our top three favorite costumes and the overall winner of the race. Each runner will also receive bells for jingling down Main Street, a long-sleeved signature T-shirt and a sweet treat at the end of the race.

All proceeds will benefit Advocates for Children, a Cartersville nonprofit that serves more than 2,600 children in northwest Georgia who have fallen victim to abuse, neglect and abandonment. Advocates' mission is to strengthen our community of families by offering safety, comfort and hope to children and preventing child abuse in all its forms.

Registration for the Jingle Jog is available online at www.AdvoChild.org. Early Bird registration is $25 and will guarantee your T-shirt size of choice. Day-of registration will be held in the back parking lot of Tabernacle Baptist Church on Dec. 6 at 4 p.m. for $30.

For more information, visit www.AdvoChild.org or call 770-387-1143. Jingle all the way down Main Street with Advocates for Children this holiday season!
