It's time for holiday fun again at KC Cheer! We will be participating as "Team Klew" in the Jingle Bell Run for Arthritis for the second year on Sunday, December 11.
Tie bells to your shoes, dress in your favorite holiday gear, and help us raise funds for our team to donate to the arthritis foundation. We're looking forward to gym-wide bonding during this fun holiday event for a good cause.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of more than 50 million Americans, including 300,000 children who deal with arthritis, which is the nation's #1 cause of disability. This is especially significant for our gym because a member of our staff is this year's Adult Honoree, and she faces the challenges of living with arthritis. By participating in this event, we can hope to make a difference in the lives of people like Coach Klew.
The Jingle Bell run is entirely underground, so it's nice and warm and perfect for a good workout. The course is flat, festive and fun with appearances from Santa Claus and Sluggerrr, and a holiday hallway filled with twinkling lights and decorations. There will be jugglers, magicians, a live DJ and much more.
- Visit the Jingle Bell Run Website, or click the button above
- Choose "join my team" to participate or "Donate Now" to just make a donation
- If you're formally joining the team you must click "I agree" and go through the registration process.
- The Whitneys have graciously offset registration costs for KC Cheer athletes as a special holiday gift. The code is in the email that was sent out gym-wide.
We encourage family members and friends to participate, but please save the discount code for KC Cheer athletes only.

EVENT - UPDATED 11/21/16
On Sunday, December 11 we will meet by Santa in the big green chair promptly at 8:15 a.m. for a gym-wide picture. Once you register, you’ll receive location and parking details.
We have recruited the most team members of any group at the event so far. With more than 122 team members, we have raised more than $3700. Be sure to keep reminding your friends and families to join us on this fun Sunday morning. We'd love to win the honor of top fundraising program of the year!
Coach Klew is the "adult honoree" this year. Her team (Fiesta) will be performing on stage at the Jingle Bell Run.
KC Cheer is part of the 2K Club, meaning we have raised more than $2,000. All members of the 2K club have full access to the VIP area on event day. This includes a full pancake breakfast by Chris Cakes. We'll also be represented on the Jingle Bell Run t-shirts that every participant receives.
All members of our team will have VIP wristbands in their goody bags that will give them access to the VIP area. PLEASE NOTE: only registered members of TEAM KLEW will have access to the VIP area, not family members who simply come to watch.
Following the event, we will meet gym-wide for yearbook signing and holiday cheer at KC Cheer gym. More details TBD
