Be part of the Santa Run Chania 2017!
Saturday 23rd of December, 13:00, at the 1st Gymnasium of Chania
The Santa Run is a festive, charitable organization, a parody of the famous Santa Run held in various cities of the world every December whereby we will be walking the city streets of Chania wearing Santa Claus costumes. In this Santa Run, official timing and medals do not exist. In our Santa Run we are all winners because we offer aid to children in need. A distance of around 3,5 km is being covered in the historic and commercial center of Chania, with the sole purpose of raising money to offer to four institutions that take care of children with health issues: elepap, kifaamea, kifap, horass.
Santa Run was started in Chania by a group of friends which turned into a voluntary group and eventually became one of the most pioneering events in Greece. This event managed to become an important cause for the entire city of Chania. This is the sixth year that Santa Run is taking place in Chania. Up to now we have raised 320.000 euros for the four institutions. This year, we hope to raise 100.000 euros in one year only for the children in need.
