We are pleased to announce the 5th Annual Mel’s Jingle Run and we’re excited to invite you to be a part of it. A holiday themed 5K race that supports the Family Guidance Center, Mel’s Jingle Run is becoming a Christmastime tradition. Join us on Saturday, December 7 at 9 a.m. on Union Square in Downtown Hickory to celebrate the season with the most jolly, fun-filled, festive 5K in our region.
All race proceeds will benefit the Family Guidance Center, an indispensable organization that offers a variety of counseling services for both individuals and families, as well as provides domestic violence services and a shelter for battered women, giving safety and compassion to those who need it most. The Family Guidance Center’s services reflect their belief that families are the cornerstone of society and that strong families build strong communities.
We’re proud of this organization and all that they do for our community. We’re asking for your help in raising necessary funds to assist The Family Guidance Center in continuing their excellent service to our friends and neighbors.

Not only is it a family-friendly community event, but it also provides encouragement and support to non-profit organizations doing the important work that makes our city a great place to live.
