This year’s edition of the Arlington Heights Rotary Santa Run aims to bring together locals and runners from communities throughout the Chicago Metropolitan Area. We know you might be asking yourself ‘’Is the commute worth it?’’. Well, we can’t answer that question for your day job, but to run with over 1000 Santa’s, the answer is a definite Yes!
The Arlington Heights Rotary Santa Run is a unique opportunity that only takes place once a year and it helps spread the true spirit of Christmas as proceeds from the Rotary Santa Run are distributed to causes locally, throughout the US, and globally as part of Rotary International’s charitable efforts.
We’re asking you to #CommuteforaCause as you participate in the #RotarySantaRun. Save the date, 12/07/19. The race kicks off at 10AM with our David Jaffee @ Properties Reindeer Dash kicking off for kids at 9:30AM. You’ll be commuting for a cause to participate in the oldest holiday run in the region, having given almost $300,000 to charities in and around Arlington Heights.
Not a runner, join us for the 1 Mile walk. Spread the word about the Rotary Santa Run and gather with your family, friends to make this part of your holiday traditions.
After the race, stay in downtown Arlington Heights and make a day of it! Take your group to lunch at one of the many fabulous restaurants and get a jump on holiday shopping in one of the specialty retail stores nearby.
5 Piece Santa suits will be provided for participants of the following events, the 5K Run/Walk and the 1 Mile timed Run/Walk. The design can be found on the Rotary Santa Run website, www.rotarysantarun.org. (WE NEED IMAGES OF PEOPLE WEARING SUITS ON THE WEBSITE, Which Page?)
Although the commute will take a while, think about it as a Christmas present since your participation will provide to numerous local, regional, and international charities. Run with friends and create a Team. Register TODAY to help make a change and see the magic of the season unfold in front of your eyes! #MAKEADIFFERENCE #RUNFORACAUSE
