When You Wish Upon A Star

The Leicester Santa Fun Run 2015

On Sunday 6th December 2015 at Leicester’s Victoria Park hundreds of supporters gathered in red to join in the fun, but there was a twist, with a blue army of Santa’s running alongside the traditional red as we teamed up with Leicester City Football Club for the second year running.  Filbert the Fox, Leicester City’s Mascot and When You Wish Upon a Star’s Wish Bear Mascot entertained the young ‘elves’ with their dancing and fired up a friendly competition!

All funds raised on the day contributed to the cost of the charities annual East Midlands trip to Lapland and to grant Wishes for children living with life threatening illnesses. We would like to thank everyone who took part and helped to raise an amazing amount of money.

We hope to see you again next year.

 

 

 

 

Calling all Santa’s! It’s time to get into the festive mood and put your running shoes on – and all for a good cause. On your marks, get set, ho ho ho!

Come and join in the fun on Sunday 6th December 2015 at Victoria Park, Leicester. Bring along friends, family and colleagues, you can even bring your dog; to help us continue granting Wishes for children who are living with a life threatening illness.

Leicester's fundraising Santa’s and Santa’s little helpers will run, jog or walk around Victoria Park. Spread over a 2.5km or 5km circuit, this event is a great way to get into the Christmas spirt, whilst raising money for a deserving cause When You Wish Upon a Star. What’s more, you don’t have to be a runner to take part.
