Ring in the holidays with a Jingle Bell Run

The Traverse City Track Club is preparing to hold its annual Jingle Bell Run through downtown on Sunday, December 22nd.

The run starts at 5:30pm with the start and finish on Park Street right in front of the Park Place where there will be a big fundraising party afterwards.

Proceeds will go towards two good causes, the Christmas Wish program and ACTS food pantry.

"About seven years ago, we decided to resurrect the Jingle Bell Run. Prior to that many runners would just get together informally and run. It's always nice to run the streets of Traverse City at the holiday time to see the streets and houses," run director Karen Wells said.
