JINGLE IN JULY! Come join KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Programs' Reading office as we host our fifth annual 5K fun run, and 1 mile walk on July 30, 2016 at the scenic Gring's Mill Park. Beginning at 8:30am, both the race and walk take place on the historic Union Canal along the Tulpehocken Creek. Gring's Mill's cinder-path trails are measured for accurate distances by Pretzel City Sports, shaded by the natural park-like greenery, and are mostly flat. The 5K race will be also be professionally timed by Pretzel City Sports.

The entire event is Christmas themed with holiday decorations, jingle bells galore, fun, and themed awards. Costumes are encouraged and fun is a requirement - the more creative and "jingly" the better! Each participant will receive their own string of bells to "jingle all the way" making the trails sound festive! We're hoping Santa will be able to take a break from his summer vacation again this year to run in the race...in his summer attire of course! Last year Santa, Mrs. Claus, and all the reindeer ran in the 5K! Not to mention all the elves, fairies, and other holiday characters that attended!!

Toy drive donations will be accepted to benefit the children in KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Programs' Reading office. Please bring new, unwrapped gifts with you to packet pickup or on race day. All money raised will be used to provide support, recognition, and appreciation to our foster parents, gifts and activities to the children in their care, and support to the foster care program. You will be helping our foster parents make the holidays even more special for the children in their care.
