More than 100 people participated on Dec. 17 in the second annual Hot Chocolate 5K and One Mile Family Fun Run, which began and ended at the Owings Mills Jewish Community Center. The event — which was originally to be held Dec. 10, but was rescheduled because of snowy weather — was presented by the JCC of Greater Baltimore and Hadassah Greater Baltimore.
The family-friendly gathering included special activities for kids and hot chocolate-themed swag, as well as an after-party for participants and families with bagels, coffee and, of course, hot chocolate. Prizes were awarded for overall male and female winners and in particular age categories, as well as for the best themed Chanukah outfit.
“It was a wonderful event,” said Justin Dominick, the JCC’s senior fitness director. “We had a new course this year, and people seemed to really like. Everyone had a great time.”
Proceeds benefited the JCC Maccabi 36th Anniversary Celebration and Scholarship Fund and Hadassah’s Breast and Testicular Cancer Education Program in local high schools
