Thank You!! Kirkland 12 K’s of Christmas Runners & Staff

Thank you 12 k's of christmas runners and staff

For the second year we were given an opportunity to be a presence at the Kirkland 12 K's of Christmas run.  This is an annual event that offers a 12K and 5K run/walk with a Christmas theme for around 1,500 Seattle area runners, joggers and walkers.

We sponsored a booth and had a great time playing Holiday themed characters for the event.

This year Joe dressed up as Santa Clause and I played Buddy the Elf.  3 years ago I played a character from the National Lampoons Christmas Vacation movie.

You may have seen us on King 5 this year.  We held the finish line for the winners of each heat of the race.

I don't think the big guy needs any introduction.  Joe did an amazing job playing Santa and bringing holiday cheer to the event.

Pictures With Santa and Buddy the Elf

One of my favorite Christmas movies is Elf and getting to play Buddy the Elf for the event was a blast.

This year racers got to take pictures with Santa and Buddy.

Including our dear friends, Krista Williams and Brenda King pictured below.

Cousin Eddy

Last year Jason played the role of Cousin Eddy emptying his RV's poop tank on the street, along the race course.  Do you know the scene?

It was super fun playing the character and having so many racers yell in support, say hi and even stop and take pictures with him.

The Booth

This year a member of Team TMG, Tri Nguyen, managed the booth with Pineapple cake and giveaways.
3 years ago Joe and our founding team member, Chris Fiamengo, held down the booth.
