Join us for the first ever ACE and TJ's Grin Kids Ugly Sweater Run presented by DASH Home Loans. This festive 5K and Elf Run will start and finish at BoatYard Lake Norman which is synonymous with a good time. Each runner will receive a special gift from Santa and an award medal.  Santa will be there to greet all the the boys and girls!  It promises to be a super fun morning with a little bit later race start to avoid the chilly morning. After the run, participants will enjoy hot toddy's (for those over 21), a hot chocolate bar for our little Elfin runners, food, vendors, kid's activities, festive music, and much more.  Don't miss out on this great event.  Bring the whole family!

Our event benefits Ace and TJ's Grin Kids.  Established in 2000, Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing a magical, all-expense paid, 5-day experience at Walt Disney World for children between the ages of 5-12 who are terminally ill or chronically disabled and their immediate family.
