Join us for the inaugural Pell City Rotary Club Jingle Bell 5K Run and Family Fun Run/Walk at Pell City’s beautiful Lakeside Park. This should be a jingling good time for you, your friends and family. Your race route will begin at the center of the Park down the tranquil wooded running path, then run through the Park down to the Lakefront area, and then run over the Lake water via a long wooden bridge to the finish line.

With your generous donations, our Community and our Club can do BIG things.
