Local runners of the Coastal Bend are lacing up their tennis shoes Saturday morning for a great cause. The Jingle Bell Run 5k is giving runners the chance to help give out bicycles to children this holiday season. Bikes for Kids is hosting the run and is known for their yearly non profit work that helps spread joy for those less fortunate.

The event is fun for the entire family, as multiple runs and walks will be featured for all age groups. Those not old enough to compete in the 5k will have the opportunity to run in the Kids 1k, also those who do not want to run can also enjoy the 2 mile walk.

The 5k begins at 8:30 a.m. and will be followed by a post party event at Brewster Street Icehouse.
