Hundreds expected at Saturday's Jingle Bell Jog

Runners will lace up their jogging shoes for a day of family holiday fun Saturday morning. 

Every dollar raised from the Jingle Bell Jog will benefit the Children's Miracle Network.

The money will buy lifesaving equipment to help children at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

Participants will jog their way through the streets around Rawson Circle tomorrow morning with a 5K,10K, one mile fun walk, and toddler trot. 

"Everybody knows a family that's been affected by early pre-term birth, or a really sick or injured child," said Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Coordinator Amanda Biery.  "So I think it means so much to so many and that's why we have such a great turnout."

They're expecting close to 800 participants.

The race will begin Saturday morning at 7:45 at Phoebe HealthWorks.
