HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WENY) -- Chasing hunger out of the Southern Tier... Hundreds of runners did just that at the "Selfless Elf 5K" in the Village of Horseheads on Saturday afternoon.
The 4th annual event is sponsored by the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. The food bank's mascot "Jingles the Elf" was on hand to pump up the crowd. To add some flair, runners and walkers were decked out in their best holiday outfits.
In the spirit of giving - proceeds from the event will be used to feed the hungry.
After the race, runners were treated with hot cocoa and cookies! As well as massages and an "Elfie station".
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier is also looking for donations and volunteers, for more information go to: https://www.foodbankst.org/
