The fourth annual Jingle Bell Run, sponsored by the Absegami High School Class of 2014, was held Thursday, Dec. 6.

More than 140 Absegami Braves braved the cold weather to run a 2-mile, off-road course around the high school stadium and track, or take a 1-mile walk to raise money for the Joshua Stanton Cramer Foundation which supports New Jersey families suffering from pediatric cancer.

Groups with the largest presence were wrestling, indoor track, Interact, girls basketball, and Senior Class Council. 

In addition, a large donation was made by the Swimming and Diving Booster Club. The group with the largest number of participants was indoor track. 

Some $750 was raised from the event.

Combined with a faculty denim day the next day, the Absegami community raised a total of $1,300 for A Legacy of Love and Hope: The Joshua Stanton Cramer Foundation.
