Dickens of a Run & Walk on December 7 in StoughtonSTOUGHTON, WI – Sunday, December 7, the Yahara River Grocery Cooperative in Stoughton is sponsoring the Dickens of a Run & Walk.

Participants will walk or run a course through the streets of historic Stoughton and are encouraged to dress up in holiday gear as part of the festivities. Prizes will be awarded for the top three finishers in the 5K and for Best Dressed.
Participants are also encouraged to raise pledges for some great causes. Proceeds will benefit both the Yahara River Grocery Co-op and the Victorian Holiday Weekend Fund. Here are some ways to help:
