Join Us Saturday for the Ugly Sweater Run and WinterFest!

Join your friends at Boling Vision Center and dig out that ugly holiday sweater and join the tackiest event in town at the 2nd annual Elkhart Education Foundation’s Ugly Sweater Run presented by NIBCO on Saturday, December 3rd.  The event will be held in coordination with the downtown Elkhart Winter Fest and benefit high-impact youth programming through Elkhart Community Schools and the City of Elkhart Tolson Center.  Run in the timed 5K or frolic in the 1-mile sweater stroll (where even well-behaved canines are welcome to stroll, please no retractable leashes.)

Participants can meet Santa and tell him how nice the Elkhart Education Foundation is for being sweet elves all year long to help bridge the funding gap for Elkhart Community Schools! Dress to impress…prizes for the Ugliest Sweater, Most Creative Holiday Outfit, Fastest Male & Female in each division and Best Dressed Canine! Stay for ice-skating, holiday crafts, live music and, of course, reindeer games and much more. Santa and Mrs. Clause are available for photos and holiday wish lists. Plus there will be hot chocolate and cookies at the finish line!

“NIBCO is proud to be a part of the Elkhart community and is dedicated to its continued success. Our support of the Elkhart Education Foundation & Tolson Center will positively impact the schools and youth of Elkhart.” – Ashley Martin Vice President of Wholesale Sales for NIBCO INC.
