St. Petersburg, FL
Description
Now that the unfortunate news is out about the cancellation of the Jingle Bell Run, we want to address the questions and concerns that we have been getting regarding refunds for the event.
Boley Centers’ Jingle Bell Run is a fundraiser and the registration fee that is paid by participants is 100% tax deductible. Our organization relies on these funds each year to help provide adequate housing, clothing, furniture, and access to employment for individuals and families suffering from various mental health conditions and homelessness. Boley Centers is a non-profit organization that has been providing services to vulnerable populations for over 45 years. There is a significant amount of time, effort, & expense that goes into the Jingle Bell Run even in light of our cancellation.
This is the first time in 36 years that we have had to cancel the event and this decision was truly a last resort based on circumstances beyond our control. We attempted to reschedule the event, however with the City Event Calendar, the new ice rink at Albert Whitted Park and the coordination of over 150 volunteers, the logistics to reschedule were too difficult.
We are still offering t-shirts to all registrants and although we understand people’s disappointment, we are hopeful that most people will understand the circumstances and realize that the proceeds are going to a meaningful cause in our community. We have two options to offer to our loyal Jingle Bell Run registrants:
  • Do nothing and consider the fee paid as a donation that helps a local non-profit to provide essential resources to people in the community suffering from mental health conditions and homelessness.
  • If you would still like a refund, we are asking that you email us at boleyjbr@icloud.com no later than Monday, January 14 with the following information:
    • Name of all Adult Registrants
    • Name of all Child Registrants
    • Mailing Address
We are grateful for the support already shown by so many of you through your positive feedback through email and social media…we look forward to seeing all of you next year!
