Jingle through the Streets for Special Olympics
Too much pie last weekend? Looking for a way to trim the waistline while supporting a great cause? Put your holiday hat and running shoes on and hit the streets of Boston, Peabody or Hyannis this weekend to support Special Olympics Massachusetts. Run with a friend or make a team and raise funds to support a Special Olympics athlete for an entire year of athletic programming! We’ll supply the t-shirt, jingle bells and festive atmosphere, and you’ll be raising money for athletes with intellectual disabilities. With three locations to choose from, you can run right in your own backyard.
Want to explore the streets of Boston? Then the 12th annual Boston Jolly Jaunt, presented by the New Balance Foundation is the run for you. Saturday, December 3rd runners and walkers will don their favorite holiday gear, lace up their running shoes and take off from the Boston Common. You’ll jingle all the way as you make your way through this flat 5k road race in Boston’s Back Bay.
If running in Boston on Saturday is not your thing, check out one of our other two road races on Sunday, December 4th – Hyannis Jolly Jaunt or Peabody Holiday Torch Run. At the Hyannis Jolly Jaunt you’ll be sprinting from the Cape Cod Resort and Conference Center through the streets of Hyannis on the professionally timed course.
What? You say the north shore is your stomping ground? Then hit the pavement at the Peabody Holiday Torch Run presented by our Law Enforcement Torch Run program – a year round fundraising and awareness program run by law enforcement officers from the around Massachusetts.
Don’t forget to deck your halls with boughs of holly (put on your best festive gear) so you are entered to win one of the prizes for best costume! All courses are professionally timed and prizes will also be awarded to top male and female runners at each location.
Special Olympics Massachusetts provides year-round sports training, athletic competition and other health-related programming for athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the state free of charge. There are Special Olympics events almost every day of the week and throughout the year. We can’t do it without your help. Raising $500 will support one athlete for one year of athletic training and competition. Any little bit helps. Sign up today to jingle through the streets!
