Here comes Santa Claus

This weekend the Newcastle foreshore will come alive as hundreds of Santas take part in the annual Variety Santa Fun Run. The fun run that kicks off at Harbour Square, Honeysuckle on Sunday at 9:00am is a 3km walk and 5km fun run to help raise money for sick, disadvantaged and special needs children.

The Variety Santa Fun Run is the jolliest fun run of the year and your chance to join thousands of other Santas to spread the spirit of Christmas to Aussie kids in need.

According to the website you can “run, walk, roll or skip it, dance to entertainment along the way, make a splash on social media, and post a Santa selfie”.

The aim of the fun run is to raise $250,000 to support kids who are sick, disadvantaged, or have special needs.

Entry is open to individuals or teams.
