Jingle Bell Run, Walk and Wheel

Fun for the entire family!

The 2019 Jingle Bell Run, Walk and Wheel Steering Committee anticipate hundreds of people from across Essex County will participate on Sunday, November 10th at Ken Knapp Ford in Essex for the 25th Annual running of the Jingle Bell Run, Walk and Wheel. The event has raised thousands of dollars for Community Living Essex County in support of over 700 people with an intellectual disability throughout Essex County.

Medals will be presented to every participant; with acknowledgement for top finishers. Participants are encouraged to collect pledges to win prizes. Every participant will be eligible for a variety of door prize draws.

As a safety precaution, event officials are requesting that the public not bring dogs to the event unless they are working service dogs for the visually impaired; as well, no bicycles (wheelchairs only).


Volunteers are always welcome on race day! If you’re looking to get involved in a less physical way, feel free to fill out our volunteer application form by clicking here and you will be contacted shortly. Help is always needed before the event to set up, during the race at the kilometer markers to cheer on our participants, and after the race serving the beverages and snacks.

Don’t forget – make sure you have Community Living Essex County “liked” on Facebook, and are following us on Twitter for reminders and other details about race day! Feel free to “share” our posts to help others find out about our Jingle Bell Run, Walk & Wheel.

Sponsorships are always welcome!
