When: Sat., Dec. 3, 8 a.m. 2011
Between gorging at Thanksgiving festivities and the season's seemingly endless parties (with the lures of sweets - Christmas cookies, pies and candy), The Charlotte Jingle Bell Run/Walk sounds like a good idea. Not only does the event help support a good cause (the Arthritis Foundation), but it also gives folks the chance to burn off some calories. Tying bells to shoelaces and wearing goofy headband antlers is encouraged. For more information, visit www.charlottejinglebellrun.kintera.org.
Price: $30 for 5K; $20 for 1-mile fun run/walk; $10 for children's 5K run and 1-mile fun run/walk
