The Monroe Jingle Bell Run was established in 2015 and began as a Half-marathon & 5K. This year the Monroe Jingle Bell Run will consist of a 10K and 5K with a 2-fold mission. The first is to encourage the community to embrace a more active lifestyle and the second is to rally the community to come together and support the community and its local non profits. The race will begin and end in Forsythe Park.
The Monroe Jingle Bell Run will raise funds to benefit more than 4,000 Local Scouting in Northeast & Central Louisiana through their At-Risk program, scholarships to Camp T.L. James and Camp Attakapas, direct and indirect support. It will help ensure that every youth has the opportunity to be apart of a great organization that will develop future leaders of tomorrow no matter what social background or economic status. Scouting is needed more today than ever before.
