Santa Shuffle to assist SA’s hamper program

The Running Room’s 24th Santa Shuffle benefits The Salvation Army's Christmas hamper program, Dec. 6.

Saturday, Dec.6, will be an especially festive, family fun-filled day in downtown Kelowna.

Gather the entire clan from grandparents to your littlest elves and join in with The Running Room’s 24th annual Santa Shuffle to benefit The Salvation Army and its Christmas hamper program, beginning at 10 a.m. from Prospera Place.

Registration is open until Dec. 3.

Holiday attire is encouraged while you either stroll in the one kilometre Elf Walk at Prospera Place or run the full 5k route which takes you through Waterfront Park and City Park looping back to Prospera Place to the finish line.

The energetic Results 4 Life Fitness Team led by Rhonda Laturnus will help get everyone warmed up before they head off for the run.

The family fun will carry on after this event with the annual Downtown Kelowna Association Light Up Events that begin in various downtown venues at 11 a.m.

Santa Shuffle winners will be welcomed on the Light Up stage to help Santa as he “lights up” the beautiful Christmas tree at 5 pm in Kerry Park.

Post-event refreshments, awards and a unique Santa Shuffle finishers’ medal will be presented to all Santa Shuffle participants.
