Your support makes a difference

We have all been touched by cancer in some form or fashion in our lives. Our goal through Jingle Run for Hope 5K is to raise money for our local patients and awareness for those who could be affected by cancer in the future. Many of our patients need financial assistance during treatment. While we receive some support from outside organizations, there is still a financial deficit. Many patients need gas cards to drive to and from treatment. Some patients need help with basic utilities while they are out of work and others may need help buying their prescriptions.

That is where our annual Jingle Run for Hope comes in. Jingle Run will take place  on December 11 in Downtown Morristown but we’ll also offer an option to participate virtually this year to allow you to safely social distance while supporting patients at Morristown Regional Cancer Center. The virtual option will allow you to participate safely and on your own schedule with a flexible course options and time frame. Between December 5 – 11, you may choose the race course that best fits your goals. The virtual race offers you an interactive experience that supports the social distancing needs of today’s climate while providing real-time engagement with other participants, sponsors and Morristown Regional Cancer Center.

To race virtually this year participants will utilize the RaceJoy App for this event. Each registered participant will receive detailed instructions on using the RaceJoy application. Instructions are also available at JingleRunForHope.com. The RaceJoy application utilizes a smart phone’s gps capability to record distance and time. This fundraiser is extremely important to MHHS and MRCC because 100% of the proceeds will make a direct impact on our patient’s quality of life.
