THIS YEAR's PERFORMANCE IS DEDICATED TO                                              "BAGEL - SANTA PAWS"

Bagel and her sister will forever be overseeing the love and kindness they inspired as well as helped so many shelter/rescue dogs and cats. JUST PAWSOME!! Their SPIRITS will be with us as they look down on the 12k's of Christmas from over the Rainbow Bridge!

We invite all cloggers to come join us to support Cloggers For P.A.I.N. (Pound Animals In Need) of Medical Attention.  Please join the group and let us know by clicking on ATTENDING so I have an idea of how many cloggers we will have and the amount of space we need this year.   All money raised goes toward helping dogs/cats at the shelter that are in need of medical help.  All donations welcome!!

Like last year, we will be clogging to cued Christmas music only.  Ginny Bartes, director and instructor of Inclogito will be leading the clog routines.  Dress will be Christmas Attire and clogging shoes.  This event is outside in the park .  We will have a silent auction, so if you have items that we can auction off to raise money please let me know, every little bit helps the dogs/cats. If you don't clog yet and want to help with the event, I need folks to help decorate the tent, staff the tent, help with other things. A great day to help, have fun, enjoy all the folks and animals, to give from the heart and pay it forward by helping dogs/cats. Send me an e-mail..

12k's of Christmas is a celebration of health, fitness and the joy of Christmas and shares a portion of the proceeds to benefit Maricopa County Animal Care & Control. This is a huge event in Gilbert every year. There is a 12k and 6k run/walk, carolers, a non-competive 1.2k Santa "Sled Run". Also there will be Christmas performances in the park, along with a Christmas Bazaar and Santa's Pet Village, featuring over 30 local animal rescue groups.

12k's of Christmas expects approximately 5000 people to attend - over 2000 runners, plus their family, folks coming to the pet adoption event and those folks justs enjoying the day in the park with Christmas in the air. This is a great event to find that new 4 legged family member and give them a safe, loving, comfortable furever home.

Come join us!
