The 2nd annual YMCA of Greater Flint Santa Run will take place on December 3rd at noon at the downtown Flint YMCA. The Santa Run/Walk is a charity event featuring a 5k and 1 mile route around downtown Flint. Last year, approximately 800 Santas stampeded through Flint in the inaugural running. As one of them, I thought it was pretty cool! Registration is now open, and if you sign up before November 12th you beat the price increase. Each entry includes a 5-piece Santa Suit.
Proceeds for the Santa Run benefit the YMCA of Greater Flint Partner With Youth Campaign. Cost for early registration is just $25 (that includes the Santa Suit that is yours to keep). After Nov 12 it goes up to $30.

You can also donate some Christmas cheer by giving a toy for Toys for Tots or a pair of used shoes for Carriage Town Ministries. By doing so, you will be entered into a special prize drawing for running apparel and shoes.
