JINGLE BELL RUN 5K RAISES MORE THAN $13K FOR KIDS: The Mills at Jersey Gardens, New Jersey’s largest outlet and value retail center, and the Elizabeth Police Benevolent Association’s Local #4 donate $13,338 to Children’s Specialized Hospital, the nation’s largest provider of pediatric rehabilitation services, and its ten sites throughout New Jersey. The money, which will be directly donated to the hospital’s Chronic Pain Management program, was raised during the 7th Annual Jingle Bell Run 5K, where nearly 250 runners – decked out in Santa hats and jingle-belled shoes – participated in the holiday-themed USATF-certified race around The Mills at Jersey Gardens in Elizabeth on December 10.
