The third annual Jingle Bell Run/Winter Warm Up will take place as scheduled today.  Noon start at the Zorinsky boat ramps (156th & F).  The Open Door Mission will have a truck to collect your kind donations of new/gently use blankets, hats, coats, gloves, etc.  Last night’s single digit temperatures a timely reminder that there are those in our community in desperate need of basic warmth.

We’ll be bringing hot chocolate, coffee and Sunrize Donuts to help ease the chill.  It’s supposed to be very cold so be sure and bundle up.  For those that have asked, Yes, you can swing by with your donations, share some cheer, and head back to your more important family time.  And you’ll go back feeling a little warmer inside knowing you’ve done something to help those less fortunate.

Giving to and helping others, the true Spirit of the Season.

Heads up!  Next week’s (January 1st) 3rd annual Hair of the Dog Run/Walk has been moved up to 10:00 am to accommodate the Husker football game’s noon start.  This is the fundraiser for the Food Bank of the Heartland.

Thanks to Nebraska Run Guru Events, LLC for hosting both of these fundraising events.  Team Nebraska is proud to partner with NRGE and the good charitable work conducted throughout the year.

Be sure and check in tonight for the annual Christmas Classic!
