POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

Oak Grove students jogged for seven minutes straight during the Jingle Jog on Thursday, Dec. 19, at the elementary school.

Each brought in an art supply item per lap that they committed to complete to be placed in the waiting room of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The annual tradition was initiated eight years ago by Principal Jenifer Richardson to promote physical activity and charity.
