Register here for the Edinburgh Santa Run 2016

The Edinburgh Santa Fun Run & Walk is a great way to enjoy time with family, friends and work colleagues to help us continue granting the very special Wishes for children who are living with a life threatening illness throughout Scotland.

It is a great Christmas event for everyone, the 2.5km event will start at 11am after a special Christmas warm up. The route is accessible to wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Children in push chairs and dogs on leads are more than welcome, with special prizes for the best dressed pushchairs and best dressed dogs.

We are offering an Early Bird Discount to all Santa’s over the age of 5yrs who register to take part before the 30th November 2016.
£10 for Santa’s over the age of 12yrs (normally £15)
£5 for children aged between 5-12yrs (normally £7.50)
 
This year we will be asking for all adult Santa’s to raise a minimum sponsorship of £20 (to be paid into the charity no later than 6 weeks after the event). For EVERY £20 raised your name will be put into our Edinburgh Santa Run Draw where you have the chance to win a week at Hengar Manor in our luxury 4 bedroomed, Scandinavian style lodge, which can sleep up to 8 people and is situated near Bodmin, Cornwall.

To help you fundraise why not set up your online fundraising page. Every donation we receive, big or small brings a poorly child’s Wish closer to being granted. To help us make a difference and to get your fundraising started, Visit www.justgiving.com/whenyouwish  and click “Make a page.” This is a great way for your friends, family and work colleagues to support you. To help spread the word, simply email the link to everyone you know and share it on social media. Tell people what you’re doing and why they should sponsor you.

All money raised from the Edinburgh Santa Fun Run & Walk will be used to help fund The Northern Polar Express Trip on Monday 12th December 2016, when we will take between 60-70 of our Wish Children from all over Scotland together with their family to Glamis Castle on the Belmond Northern Belle (sister train to the Venice-Simplon Orient Express), in what promises to be a trip of a life time for creating the most magical of memories.

The donation can be any amount from £1, £2, or as much as they would like to give. The aim is for everyone to add their own special message to their star, and to then decorate work places, communities and Christmas trees with special WYWUAS stars.
