Operation Wake County Holiday Cheer

Our favorite event of the year, Operation Wake County Holiday Cheer, is here!

Beginning in 2011, Operation Wake County Holiday Cheer is a project the nOg Run Club fundraises for all year long, sponsoring hundreds of children each holiday season to deliver presents to all. This year will bring us to a total of 828 local children sponsored and over $11,000 worth of toys paid off on layaway!

Proceeds from the St. Paddy’s 4 Miler, World’s Largest Flip Flop 1K, Oktoberfest 4 Miler, merchandise sales and donations help fund Operation Wake County Holiday Cheer.

Corporate Sponsors:

A special thank you to our corporate sponsors Fleet Feet Raleigh and JDS Consulting & Design for their support!  If your business would like to support Operation Wake County Holiday Cheer, tax deductible donations can be made here.
