For the ninth year, runners, walkers, parents with children in strollers – many in seasonal costumes – turned up for a fun day in Loganville for the Jingle Jog 5 K and Reindeer Dash.
The event is part of the 2014 Black Bag Race Series and the Run and See Georgia Grand Prix, but it also raises funds for the summer camp for students with disabilities and other exceptionalities that is held in Walton County every summer.

As has become customary, vendors were invited to set up booths and there are other fun activities for the attendees. Santa was in town for the occasion toys also are collected every year for Faith In Serving Humanity (F.I.S.H) to provide for needy children.
According to organizers, the event began in 2006 at the Meridian Park with just 82 people and has grown almost 10-fold since. It now takes place at Loganville High School.
Editor’s Note: Since I was unable to attend, I asked anybody who was to please send in photos. The response was overwhelming. I cannot thank you enough. Photos courtesy of Michelle Couch, Kristin Henshaw and from Lisa Fogie via Teresa Johnson.
