Luke's Thursday Night Annual Jingle Bell Run on December 12th at 6:30pm at Luke's Locker at Market Street, The Woodlands TX

12/12/2013 18:15

Luke's is having their annual Jingle Bell Run on December 12th at 6:30pm.

The run will be a 3 mile fun run along the Woodlands Water Way. There will be a prize given to the runner in the most festive outfit. This event is free and open to everyone, and is a great time. New Balance will be there as well for runners to test run some of their latest and greatest footwear! There will be cookies and cocoa post run as well.

There is an optional toy drive to benefit Interfaith of The Woodlands. For those who bring an unwrapped toy they will receive a $10 Lukes' Locker gift card, 1 per customer. Interfaith has suggested board games, as they give one to each family they assist at Christmas. They also suggested gifts for older children as well such as footballs, make up kits, ear phones, etc. but are most appreciative for any donations they receive.

Hope to see you all there!

All the best,

Rachael Peters
