Accentuate Med Spa Presents the 2023

 
Mount Holly Middle School and Rankin Elementary School 2023 Ugly Sweater 5k and Tinsel Tangle 2k

Event Information: On December 9th the streets of Mt. Holly are about to be swarmed with the season’s most terribly tacky sweaters. Get out your most embarrassing, awe inspiring Ugly Sweater and join us in downtown Mt. Holly on December 9, 2023 at the North Pole (Start Line) to get this season off to a holly jolly start. The Mount Holly Middle School and Rankin Elementary Ugly Sweater 5k and Tinsel Tangle 2k are produced by a collaboration of the Mount Holly Middle School PTO and Rankin Elementary PTA to raise funds to support the awesome students and staff at Mount Holly Middle School and Rankin Elementary with the gracious support of Accentuate Med Spa along with our other sponsors.  If you don’t have (or admit to having) an Ugly Sweater we would still love to have you join us to support our PTO and PTA – feel free to hit the 5k or 2k course festive costuming or not. We can’t wait to see everyone’s smiling faces as they cross the South Pole (Finish Line).

And if running is not your thing come on out just to see the sights, have a cup of hot cocoa, and enjoy a  treat. We hope you will also stop by the Elf Zone to enjoy some family friendly activities and mingle with some elves. There will be hot cocoa and coffee for purchase and we may even have a  food truck selling breakfast.
