The Garland County Circle of Friends Chapter, a group of individuals working to raise funds and awareness for Arkansas Children’s Hospital, will host the Second Annual Jockey Jog Competitive/Family Run, 5K at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 7, in Hot Springs.

Participants can expect fun for the whole family in addition to the family fun run and 5K. Activities, games, hot cocoa and more will be available.
