The Sanibel-Captiva Optimist Club invites the community, families, friends and leashed pets to the Jingle Bell Walk, a 5K walk or run on Sanibel's Bowman's Beach for charity. Proceeds will benefit local children through the Sanibel charitable organization F.I.S.H. Start the walk anytime between 9-10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7.
