    Kick off your holiday season at the 8th Annual Lights of Love 5K benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas (RMHC Central Texas), Saturday evening, December 6, 2016.

    Get into the holiday spirit with family and friends through the festive streets of the Mueller neighborhood. Enjoy the scenic trail of holiday lights and caroling voices, while running, walking or strolling in Austin’s favorite holiday race. Most of all, celebrate the season of giving by keeping families of critically ill or injured children together.

    The event-filled evening features photos with Santa Claus and Ronald McDonald, food, kids’ crafts, music, hot chocolate and enough holiday spirit to last through the entire season!

    Make this a family tradition and don’t forget to bring out your favorite four-legged friend.


    Jingle all the way

    Thank you for making the 6th annual Lights of Love 5K and Family Fun Run the best year yet!
