Reading FCCP Office to Host 8th Annual Jingle in July 5K Fun Run/One Mile Walk Saturday, July 27, 2019


READING, PA (July 1, 2019) – KidsPeace will host the 8th Annual Jingle in July 5K Fun Run/One Mile Walk on Saturday, July 27th at Gring’s Mill Park in Wyomissing, PA. Proceeds from the event support the efforts of KidsPeace’s Foster Care and Community Programs office in Reading, PA.


Jingle in July takes the joy of the Christmas season and transplants it to the middle of summer. Participants are encouraged to wear holiday-themed costumes – so that runners and walkers could find themselves sharing the course with elves, reindeer, sugarplum fairies and (a vacationing) Santa Claus!


Keeping with the theme, the Reading FCCP office also conducts a toy drive in conjunction with the event,

encouraging attendees to bring new unwrapped gifts to be distributed to children in KidsPeace’s foster care program during the actual holiday season.


Online registration for the Jingle in July event can be found at Online registration ends July 24. For additional information, call (610) 921-0130 or email


The Jingle in July 5K Fun Run/One Mile Walk event is made possible by the generosity of its sponsors, including Gold Sponsors Lentz Milling Company and Wawa.
