For the past 27 years, the Salvation Army and Running Room have partnered to present the annual Santa Shuffle 5K Fun Run and 1K Elf Walk. The Santa Shuffle has grown from a single event in Edmonton to a large-scale initiative with over 16,000 participants in 41 locations across Canada.
An expansion of this magnitude would not have been possible without the online support of the Running Room. Through the online registration system, participants can create their unique profile, register and collect pledges from friends and family all on one simple platform. The fundraising tools allow runners to set a pledge goal, e-mail out a link to their donation page and easily track success.
As we move toward a cashless society, online fundraising tools are playing a more prominent role. In 2017, the online platform helped Santa Shuffle participants raise $131,054.72 in support of their local Salvation Army.
