Thanks for helping make Jingle Bell event successful

The Port Orchard Jingle Bell Run/Walk Committee would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Port Orchard and the surrounding communities for their continued and ever-growing support.

Each year we strive to reach a little farther and give a little more and it is through the help of so many that our goals are met. Many thanks to all of the local businesses who formed teams and/or offered in-kind or monetary support.

We are ever grateful to the Port Orchard Police Department for keeping our participants safe and even cheering them along the way.

To all of our volunteers that coordinated efforts on the day of the event, especially the Port Orchard Pathfinder Club, the Port Orchard Eagles, the Washington Youth Academy and the South Kitsap School District — thank you for donating your time and allowing our event to be successful and enjoyed by all.

This year, more than 1,500 people participated in the Jingle Bell Run/Walk and together they have raised $57,000 and counting for the Arthritis Foundation.

Shelia Cline | Event coordinator of Jingle Bell Run/Walk
