This event is meant to get you in the spirit of Christmas. And it GIFTS back! Santa Claus with a Cause uses its proceeds to gift those who otherwise would not experience a Christmas and sincerely need staple goods. This year, more than ever. If your situation allows, hit the donate button and help us help those that do not have a gifted situation this CHRISTMAS.
*Packet Pick Up ALSO available on RACE DAY from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m at the race start/staging area.
Our gift to ourselves is health, but our gift to others is hope. Proceeds from this event are Western Wired to tribes and villages in Africa. The money is used for for Christmas Day dinners and gifts. These villages are the porters that haul the supplies to those that climb Kilimanjaro. When I ran the Kilimanjaro marathon as one of my marathons in the quest for doing all 7 continents, the porters shared that they dread Christmas. During those days, climbing expeditions halt and their is no pay. These men haul 70 to 80 lb loads for the opportunity to make a needed $5 per day. The wired money has mainly gone to their Christmas dinners and children's school fees, shoes, some school materials and medical needs. If you are in a position to do so, hit the donate button and help us help that cause.
ALSO, KID's READ is a local charity that gifts books and the motivation to learn to read. We will have a box registration that you can donate NEW and lightly used CHILDREN's BOOKS. And a portion of the donations will also assist this local charity.
May we have the spirit of giving and gifting hope while we gift health to ourselves! CAREN WARE
