Our firm loves to get involved in the community, and we are proud to continue our support of the Austin Jingle Bell 5k in 2017 is a contributing sponsor. The Jingle Bell 5k supports the well-known organization, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) in its efforts to raise awareness and funds to help those impacted by drunk drivers and to prevent future incidents. This annual holiday run is for adults and children alike and will be held on December 10 at The Domain.
Jingle Bell Jog
This year’s event will mark the 20th annual Jingle Bell 5k in Austin, Texas. The fun starts at 8 a.m. and includes a variety of festive activities for both kids and adults. All participants are encouraged to wear their holiday hats, Christmas sweaters, and to attach jingle bells to their running shoes. This year there will be two separate runs, a timed 5K for adults and a Kids’ Fun Run.
As always, Santa will be in attendance for the run, and this year he will be bringing a few helpful elves to join the kids’ run. The first 1,000 participants to sign up will be given festive athletic shirts to wear for the event, and the first 3 runners in each division will receive medals. All child runners under the age of 12 will receive medals for participation.
Did you know that every 2 minutes, someone is injured in a drunk driving accident? Too many people are injured and killed as the result of careless drivers, and MADD is hoping to make a change. MADD’s mission statement is “To end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking.” Since MADD was founded in 1980, the number of annual drunk driving deaths has decreased by half. On average, this nonprofit organization helps a victim every 13 minutes.
