On December 2, in 41 cities across Canada, over 16,000 runners and shufflers laced up to raise funds in support of marginalized and vulnerable people this Christmas.
In partnership with Running Room, The Salvation Army’s Santa Shuffle 5K Fun Run and 1K Elf Walk raise funds for Salvation Army social and community programs. Participants of all ages—many dressed in festive gear—braved freezing temperatures and inclement weather to make a difference in their local communities.
“It was a lot of fun, even though I’m not that athletic,”chuckled one shuffler.
“It’s good exercise and a great way for our family to give back to the community,” said another.
While numbers are still being finalized, this year’s event will likely raise over $600,000. Thank you to everyone who supported the 27th annual Santa Shuffle: you are Giving Hope Today. We look forward to seeing you next year on December 1, 2018.
