Elizabeth PBA Local #4 is hosting the third annual Jingle Bell Run 5K on Sunday, December 8, 2013. Hundreds of runners are expected to take part in the 5K road race around The Outlet Collection at Jersey Gardens in Elizabeth. This year’s proceeds will benefit Children’s Specialized Hospital, the nation’s largest provider of pediatric rehabilitation services with twelve sites in New Jersey serving over 20,000 children with special needs each year. The hospital serves children affected by brain injury, spinal cord injury, premature birth, autism, developmental delays, and life-changing illnesses. 

"We always knew what a fine place Children’s Specialized Hospital was, but after taking a tour of the facilities we fully realized that these were very special children being cared for by extraordinary people who deserve our support in any way we can,” said Richard Steinke, Elizabeth PBA Local #4 president. “Also, it helps spread the word about the great things Children's Specialized Hospital does for our children and their families.”
