On average, we fill the Wish Lists of 15-24 less-fortunate children in the area. Your participation and generosity helps us do this.

ALL participants receive a baggie of treats, a ceramic-fired Christmas ornament and jingle bells for their shoes as well as the option to purchase a race shirt. Participants are encouraged to dress up in the holiday spirit and to stick around for the parade immediately after the awards.
All 5k participants are eligible to win one of over 100 of our beautifully hand-crafted Christmas trophies in the Run, the Walk, or Handcycle/Chair Divisions.
All 1-Mile participants are eligible to win one of our 20 ceramic-pottery trophies or age group pottery medallions. Due to the limited number of awards in the Mile, all Milers will earn a finishing medal.
