Midlanders on Saturday had the chance to stay active, celebrate the holidays, and do it all for a good cause.

It was a spirited 5-k run in Downtown Midland, Saturday Morning.

Hundreds took part in the Citibank Jingle Bell Run for Junior Achievement, including a Santa look a like.

Kids also got to jog along in the kids' fun run.

The money raised will go to help more than 8,000 and kids in 400 classrooms around the basin, to teach students involved in Junior Achievement the ins and outs of the economy.
