The 2012 Total Jingle Bell Run and Walk may be three months away, but Discovery Green is already in the spirit with falling "snow."
FOX 26 Morning News anchor Chris Stipes served as the master of ceremonies for a kickoff event on Thursday at Discovery Green in advance of the Jingle Bell Run and Walk, which takes place Dec. 9 in downtown Houston. More than 5,000 participants are expected to run or walk in the event.
Children who attended the kickoff event were able to play in some "snow."
The Total Jingle Bell Run and Walk is divided into a kids fun run for children 13 years old and younger, a five-mile run and a three-mile run and walk. The event will raise funds and awareness for the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA. The funds raised allow the organization to provide financial assistance to families and individual with financial need who are unable to pay for YMCA programs and services.
