|About||An annual tradition, The Jingle 5K attracts thousands of runners and walkers every year to support the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center Auxiliary.|
|Mission||The Jingle 5K is the largest annual fundraiser for the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center Auxiliary.|
One of the largest and most cheerful 5K races in the area, The Jingle 5K is a race that runners and walkers participate in year after year. Last year we had over 1,700 registrations!
Runners are outfitted with jingle bells, laces and lighted flashers which we supply. There is festive, holiday music along the course and live music at the finish. When you're done racing, enjoy the huge post-race party including food and adult beverages (with proper ID).
The Jingle 5K features a wave start based on a runner’s predicted finish time for safety. Runners can then pace themselves with their contemporaries. The first 1,800 Runners receive a colorful Leslie Jordan Micro-mesh wicking shirt excellent for training runs. Colorful award tiles three deep for categories 9 and under, then 10-14; 15-19 and five-year age categories to 80+. Overall M/F winners receive New Balance running shoes courtesy of Fit2Run. Master; Grand master; Sr Grand Master, and Veterans M/F winners receive 6" custom tiles and gift certificates.
The Jingle 5K benefits the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center Auxiliary. The LWRMC Auxiliary provides scholarships to those wanting a career in healthcare; provides items that benefits its patients, guests and volunteers, and supports local community organizations. The Lakewood Ranch Medical Center Auxiliary is a 501 (c) (3) non-for-profit public charity.
