The Santa Run

Please join us on our Santa Runs and help grant the Wishes of these very special children...

Where does your fundraising go from the Santa Run Events?

Each December, When You Wish Upon a Star takes 400 sick children to Lapland to meet the real Father Christmas. Their magical adventure includes skidoos, snowmobiles, husky rides, quad bikes, sledging, skiing and of course sleigh rides with Rudolph in the enchanted Forest!

Meeting Santa Claus

It becomes very emotional when Santa meets the children and to see this great giant of a man listening to a small child, intently telling him all their hopes and dreams and really believing in him, is very moving. These trips mean the children, just for one day, can forget about their pain and suffering in the excitement of meeting Santa Claus.

Your Generosity and Support

When You Wish Upon A Star relies purely on the generosity and support we receive through donations and from fundraising events and it is only with your support that we are able to grant these Wishes.
