Thanks to The Toms River Police Foundation, I can introduce The 21st Annual Toms River Police Jingle Bells Run!

On December 8th from 1:30 PM to 5:00 PM, runners will be completing a One-Mile Fun Run/Walk, a 5K or and Kiddie Dash for multiple amazing causes!

Funds from this event will be given to a few causes:

1. Proceeds will fund the Toms River Scholarship Fund which helps our local high school students

2. A Spotlight Donation will be given to Cop2Cop, which according to the website is, "a confidential peer support program for NJ Law Enforcement Officers and their families, helping with suicide prevention in memory of Det. Glenn Lucas, TRPD #218."


3.A Law Enforcement Scholarship will also be award in loving memory of Det. Mark Catalano, #187, Toms River Police Department.

So there are a lot of causes worth running for!
