  2015 Spirit of Giving
Jingle Bell Run and Walk
December 12, 20

Presented by




Get ready for the 6th annual Spirit of Giving 5k Run & Walk coming up this December 12, 2015!

Please consider RUNNING, WALKING, ROLLING or VOLUNTEERING this to help better your community. The Modesto Spirit of Giving benefits the City of Modesto Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods Department’s Leisure Bucks Program, helping underprivileged youth, seniors and persons with disabilities afford local recreation programs. This run also benefits the Modesto Gospel Mission, providing nutritious meals, warm beds, and a place of safety for thousands of poor and homeless men, women, boys and girls.

This year will continue the tradition of a scenic run through the beautiful tree-lines streets of Modesto’s college district but will feature a new route. There are lots of festivities to look forward to before, during and after the race, including music, holiday vendors, an awards ceremony and SNOW! So don’t forget to bring some cash and stock up on some holiday gifts.

In addition to the 5k run and walk, there will be a short kids FUN run where children 10 and under can chase the Grinch out of Modesto! All participants will receive a medal.
