Wellington Hosts Annual Jingle Bell 5K Run

Santa with Angela Donnino and Carly Merkle.

Darkness, fog and the threat of rain did nothing to deter more than 600 people, many wearing jingle bells, from taking part in the seventh annual Wellington Jingle Bell Run on Sunday, Dec. 16. Runners brought in new, unwrapped toys for Wellington’s Hometown Holiday Toy Drive and received T-shirts and medals for completing the 5K race. The event has become so popular that registration sold out. PHOTOS BY CALLIE SHARKEY
