Kawartha Lakes Food Source Ready For A Jolly Good Time At The 12th Annual Lindsay Jolly Jog

KAWARTHA LAKES-Save the date of November 27th because it is time for the 12th Annual Lindsay Jolly Jog!

The Jolly Jog is a festive and family-friendly event that encourages you to bring the whole family for a 5K walk or run around Lindsay.

Jog 5K your way when you sign up as either a virtual or in-person jogger. As well, new to Jolly Jog is the Jolly Squad! When you register, create your own Jolly Squad so that your friends, family, or coworkers can join it and you can all participate together.

No matter which option you choose, you can participate in all the Jolly Jog fun! The Best Festive Dress Competition will still run through our social media, so be sure to upload your costume by 2pm on November 27th to be entered to win. Prizes will be given for Best Dressed Individual, Group, Family Unit, and Pet, as well as a special prize for Most Funds Raised!

Registration is free but financially able participants are encouraged to donate $20 per jogger, as that amount is eligible for a charitable tax receipt. Donations are hoped for, as Kawartha Lakes Food Source is fundraising to continue supporting those in our community who are facing food insecurity.

“Kawartha Lakes Food Source has had an extremely busy year, so we think the community deserves a Jolly ole time right now,” said Kate Dorotheou, Community Engagement Coordinator at KLFS. “What could be better? A day dedicated to combatting hunger, combined with the festive spirit of the season! Plus, the costumes are always a pleasure to see!”

Head to Eventbrite.ca and search Lindsay Jolly Jog to grab your registration spot, or to learn more.
