Nothing says ‘Christmas’ quite like pulling on a Santa suit and running, jogging or walking 5km for charity.
And The Myton Hospices is hoping supporters – and lovers of all things festive – will get into the Christmas spirit by taking in part in its Santa Dash 2021.
Bigger and better than ever before, Santa Dash 2021 will feature a whole host of fun events and attractions to make it a great day out for all the family – including a pre-dash dance warm-up, Best Dressed Dog Competition and prizes for Santa’s Little Helpers – anyone who raises over £50.
The event takes place on Sunday 12th December at Victoria Park in Leamington Spa and, as always, will feature a 5km run, jog or walk around the park – all beginning at 10am.
Once supporters have completed the course, a fabulous festive time awaits them at the finishing line where Santa and his reindeers will be making a guest appearance and an inflatable snow globe perfect for photo opportunities will be set up.
There will also be plenty of food and refreshments – including the Myton Drinks Van – and musical performances by Rock Choir and Leamington Brass.
Clare Cropp, Fundraising Operations Manager at Myton, is looking forward to the annual calendar highlight.
She said: “We’re so excited about Santa Dash 2021, it will be bigger and better than ever before and jam-packed with fun things for a great family day out.
“We are hoping to raise £35,000 from your Santa Dash sponsorship this year so we can continue providing our services to people with a life-limiting illness, and their families, over the festive period.
“And we hope as many people as possible will sign up, take part and enjoy a great day out in support of Myton.
“The environment is important to us at Myton, so everyone taking part will receive a medal made from recycled wood that can also be used as a Christmas tree decoration.”
Taking part in Myton’s Santa Dash costs £12.50 for adults until November 5 and £17.50 after, while children cost £6.
