The 5th Annual Modesto Spirit of Giving Jingle Bell 5k Run and Walk is right around the corner! There's something for everyone and all proceeds benefit the City of Modesto Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods Department's Scholarship Program for low-income children, seniors, and disabled citizens; as well as the Modesto Gospel Mission, providing nutritious meals, warm beds, and a place of safety for thousands since 1948. Bring a non-perishable food item to benefit the Modesto Gospel Mission and be entered in our raffle for great prizes!

New for this year, the Modesto Spirit of Giving is offering a wheel chair division! So walk, run, or roll in this exciting race! Teen and adult participants race through downtown, Modesto Junior College, and the historic Graceada Park neighborhoods on this paved route, with the race beginning at 8:30am in the heart of Downtown Modesto.
