Event description

Description

The Arc of Harrisonburg and Rockingham is hosting their first Santa Run, Walk, n' Roll on December 7th, 2018 at 6:00pm to 7:00pm just before the Harrisonburg Holiday parade. We will be making a quick dash in Santa costumes from Wolfe Street to City Hall to raise funds and awareness for The Arc of Harrisonburg and Rockingham.

TICKET INFO

"Santa" sign ups are $25 dollars per person for people 12 years of age and older, $15 for kids 3-11 and college students, and free for children 2 and under. Santa costumes for adults and elf ears for children will be provided day of as well as bibs for each runner, a T-shirt, and a drawstring bag.

Can't make the Santa run but want to support the cause? You can donate an amount of your choosing by clicking on "Tickets" and selecting the "Donate" option that appears. You can also be sponsored to run by your company, family, or friends by starting a team!

STARTING A TEAM

We need team captains! These key leaders use their existing networks to encourage individuals to sign up and therefore help push us towards our financial goals by creating their own team page through Eventbrite. Teams can be related to a club, job, center of faith, sorority, fraternity, university, business, or a mixture of the above! A prize for biggest team will be awarded at the beginning of the run.

Your team will need to have a specific name created through our Eventbrite page that is communicated to prospective team members (Ex: Santa’s Little Elves). Once this name has been shared (registrants will not see a list of available teams so make sure to communicate this detail!), individuals can sign up on our Eventbrite page under your team at their own convenience. When an individual signs up under your team name, they’ll be able to read through any specific details you want them to know (where to meet before the race, goals for how many team members you’re hoping sign up, etc). Team captains have the unique ability to edit their team page throughout the registration process which ends December 7th.

For more details about how to create a team, check out this nifty document.

PLEDGED DONATIONS

It’s easy to collect pledges from friends and family on your behalf as a runner. This is for in person donations by check or cash for those who will not be participating in the run itself but would like to support the cause (if they would like to donate by card, refer them to this Eventbrite page to donate). Simply print out and fill out this pledge form and bring it along with all checks and cash on the day of the event. Want to start a team AND gather pledges? Go for it! A prize will be given to the individual with the highest number of donations and the most donated total!

Contests! Prizes!

During registration, music and hot beverages will be provided to keep you warm! Before the race, prizes will be awarded for the following contests so get out that holiday decor!

DAY OF DETAILS

Arrival: Please arrive by 6 PM on the day of the run so that we can make sure all are registered before the race begins. Registration will be under the Friendly City Food Coop's pavilion by their parking lot. Adult registrants 12 and older will receive a santa costume (which we encourage all to proudly dawn during the race!) and registered hildren 3-11 will receive elf ears. All registrants will also receive a T-shirt, race bib, and bag when checking in. Music and hot beverages will be provided before the race while we announce winners for our fabulous contests!
