I big thanks to all the volunteers from Salvation Army, from Columbia High School NHS, from LJFAT, from Brazoria REACT, and all the others who came out and made the Jingle Bell Run such a huge success. We had 119 registered for the 5K and 1 mile walk and 27 kids finish the 300 meter kids run. With a fast finish, Xavier Jimenez took first place in men's division with a finish of 16:09. Journey Hartung led the women's division with a finish of 20:11. Sponsors of the race include BASF, Lone Star Bank, Krogers, Wal-Mart, TJ's Lube, Elite Appraisal, Chili's, Academy, Lowe's, and Bleu Roots Salon. Santa Claus made a guest appearance and cheered our little runners on.
