She encouraged anyone who can to carpool, bicycle, walk or even run to the event, which begins at 6 p.m. at the Baylands Athletic Center at the end of Geng Road, off Embarcadero Road just east of U.S. Highway 101. Pre-registrants have already been e-mailed, Renalds said, adding that word-of-mouth might help alleviate the parking and traffic jams.

Funds raised support the Weekly's Holiday Fund drive and are disbursed in grants to local organizations that provide services to children and adolescents and their families.
