CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) -- Dozens gathered at First Baptist Saturday morning for the one mile run. Many dressed up in Santa beards

and hats. The run even ended with participants running through two snow machines. All proceeds for the event will go to Havis' Kids,

an organization raising money so special needs kids and their kids and their families can take a trip to Disney World.

"I don't think it's necessarily the event, although the event is fabulous and it was a draw because it is unique and it's fun and it's festive
but really the people that are here are here to support what Havis does through this organization," Event Organizer, Annie Richardson
said.

The next trip to Disney will be in 2018 and Richardson says they plan to continue the Jolly Jog next year.
