Operation Wake County Holiday Cheer


Thank you to everyone who donated and volunteered to make this year possible! We sponsored a total of 143 kids and paid off over $10,000 worth of toys on layaway.

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. To date we have sponsored a total of 828 local children and over $11,000 worth of toys paid off on layaway!

In normal years, 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.  Due to COVID, our fundraising from races has been significantly diminished.
