Caroling Award

Congratulations to this year’s winner of the 12k’s of Christmas Caroling Award presented by Pam Johnson State Farm Agency in Gilbert – the Campe Verde Jazz Band. We hope you all enjoyed them as they played for us at packet pickup. Thanks to all the performers on the course this year!

Lots of Adoptions

Thanks to everyone who visited Santa’s Pet Village, and extra special thanks to all the folks who brought home a new furry friend. There were over 20 adoptions at the event this year and surely more to come! Remember… if you are looking for a pet, please visit your local rescue.

Still time to Register!

There is still time to register... Sign up at Packet Pickup on Friday December 13th or on Saturday December 14th, any time up to race start! We’d love to have you. Bring your friends and family. Come out and support our animal rescues by participating in the run/walk or just visiting Santa’s Pet Village.

NEW 2019: Packet Pickup on FRIDAY

New in 2019, we will be doing packet pickup the night BEFORE the run – on Friday December 13th – at the event site in Gilbert from 3 to 7 pm.

That’s Freestone Park, 1045 E Juniper Ave, Gilbert, AZ 85234

We will be at the RED RV right across from the basketball court; in the parking lot between the basketball court and the baseball diamonds.

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who made it out to the 10th Anniversary of the 12k’s of Christmas, this year sponsored by Fulton Homes. We are happy to tell you that there were 13 pets adopted on site and 9 applications for potential forever homes, plus lots of inquiries about adopting and fostering. We appreciate the support of our long time sponsors – Wells Fargo, San Tan Ford, Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport and Pam Johnson State Farm Insurance Agency – and all of the volunteers and carolers; over 350 people. We couldn’t do it without you! 

NEW Packet Pickup Location

NEW in 2018, we’ll be doing advance packet pickup on Thursday Dec 6th at San Tan Ford (1429 E. Motorplex Loop, Gilbert 85297). A long time sponsor of the 12k’s of Christmas, San Tan Ford has some fun in store for everyone who drops by to get their packets on the 6th. Note: you can pick up packets for family and friends – just be sure to bring their registration confirmation and a photo of their drivers license.
