For years now, Southern AgCredit has been a supporter of Children’s of Mississippi Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, the only center in the state providing comprehensive care for children with cancer or blood-related diseases.
In 2014, Southern AgCredit held the ﬁrst Jingle Bell Jog/Fit for Ag, a race in Ridgeland, Mississippi, donating all proceeds to Children’s of Mississippi. Since then, Southern AgCredit has kept our commitment and kept the race going. We’ve raised and donated over $200,000. Our funds contributed to the renovation of the 17,750-square-foot facility, located inside the Blair E. Batson Tower in Jackson, Mississippi. Improvements include upgrading and expanding the center by adding more exam rooms, a larger infusion room and updating the center’s pharmacy.
After two years of being unable to hold the race due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Southern AgCredit was able to hold the 2022 Jingle Bell Jog. The race had over 350 participants and resulted in a donation of $30,000 to the hospital.
The check was presented to Children’s of Mississippi on January 31st by Southern AgCredit.
