The Marietta and Cobb County areas are looking more and more festive as
we enter the holiday season. With Thanksgiving behind us, the next exciting
event on the calendar for the Jones & Swanson staff is the Annual
Sleighbells on the Square 5K/1K Tot Trot. This is the 17th Annual Sleighbells event and is scheduled for Saturday, December 9th on the Marietta Square.
While Sleighbells is a Peachtree Qualifying race and is USATF certified,
it’s not meant only for serious racers. Anyone can attend and walk
or run the race along with so many others in festive Christmas spirits.
We look forward to this event each year and are sponsoring, along with
others from the community and the Cobb County Bar Association. The race
raises funds for the Children’s Emergency Fund – an organization
that works with the Cobb County and Marietta City School Districts in
assisting students and their families with emergency financial needs.
The Children’s Emergency Fund has played an integral part in the
lives of countless children and their families, and it is a program that
Jones & Swanson actively and proudly supports.
As always, the course begins and ends in historic Marietta Square –
rain or shine. Participants will travel through Marietta neighborhoods
before returning to the square for the award ceremony. All participants
receive a long sleeve moisture wicking shirt and jingle bells on shoes
