Be a Claus run for a Cause.

Testimonial from the 2018 Participants

"I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the race. The music and the encouragement along the
route were very uplifting. Looking forward to this years run." 
Charlie and Tonya Hurt

I am Brian Kellems, I am a Special Olympics athlete.
The first year of the Santa Run, I did the one mile, and now 
for the past four years, I have done the 5K.  Because of this 
I have been more active, earned medals and pins, for doing up to three 
thousand miles!
Special Olympics is focused on inclusive Health Worldwide for people
with Intellectual Disabilities.
Special Olympics  of Indiana, is the joy of inclusion, and focuses on just how big of
an impact it can be for athletes to be included in events, sports, and different groups.
Being a part of the Santa Run makes me feel wanted, and people enjoy seeing us there 
having fun along with everyone else.  And that makes it even better of an experience for me!
Thank You for including us in this fun and exciting event.  You are making a difference.

The spirit of Christmas and the Evansville Community comes alive at this event. As one of
hundreds in a Santa suit, a smile is on your face as you walk the course, singing Christmas
songs for such a great cause.  The opportunity to begin the holiday season in such a jovial
manner should not be missed. Our grandchildren will join us again this year. See you then!
Pat and Danny Bateman

"Nothing better than starting off the Christmas  season with a nice one mile walk/run with
the entertainment of all the different Santa’s and UE cheerleaders cheering you on. 
Looking forward to December 2019 walk/run."
Brad and Missy Wolfe

"I've participated in two of the annual Santa Runs and I find them to be the most
whimsical and wacky races I've ever done. There's something charming and fun
about spending a December morning running through the streets of Evansville
with hundreds of people dressed like Santa! And you can't beat cookies and
cocoa at the end of a race!"
Kathy Stewart

Testimonial from the 2017 Proceeds Recipient

The University of Evansville couldn’t be more grateful to Rotary and the Santa Run for
making the Changemaker Challenge possible. Seeing young people learn how to make
a tangible impact on their community is always so exciting, in particular because it often
opens their eyes to how special and collaborative our community can be. Young people
want to make their world a better place, and the Changemaker Challenge is an important
vehicle for demystifying how to do that. If we want to encourage people to stay here, raise
families here, start businesses here, then we need to make sure we empower them to have
a voice in what their city looks like and feels like.
By supporting a fun event like the Santa Run, people can literally change lives and their
community for the better.   Previous competitors have helped launch our city-wide Bike
Share program, designed aquaponics programs that will feed children in school systems,
created anti-bullying board games, improved surgical robots, and created the Communitree
that will be placed right up front in the Mickey’s Kingdom playground downtown. The Santa Run
is one event where you know your registration dollars are going to a good cause.
THANK YOU Rotary and Santa Run for making it possible for us to make sure that ChangeMaking truly is for everyone!
