Egg Nog Jog brings community together to raise awareness for leukemia

On the morning of December 17, the Linganore High School (LHS) SGA hosted the 11th annual Egg Nog Jog.

The jog was created in honor of Quentin Ingram, a young child from the Linganore community who passed away from leukemia.

The jog was originally started by a Linganore student in 2011 to continue Quentin’s mission of bringing better toys to the Johns Hopkins pediatric oncology unit. Each year, the LHS community gathers to donate toys to young children fighting cancer.

The run takes place on a cold December morning, and egg nog is passed out to participants every quarter mile. The event is heavily trafficked, and there are many families that hold this event as an annual holiday tradition.

For others, this was the first Egg Nog Jog in which they have participated. One student, Zack Davis, spoke on why he ran.

“I think it’s really important to raise awareness for cancer of all kinds,” said Davis. “It makes me feel whole inside.”

This year, the jog raised over $7,500 to donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
