TORONTO, Nov. 29 /CNW/ - On Saturday, December 1st runners and walkers of
all ages will deck themselves in festive gear to take part in The Salvation
Army Santa Shuffle Fun Run & Elf Walk.
Hundreds of runners across the GTA will enjoy this frosty 5km Fun Run as
well as a 1km Elf Walk at 4 different locations in the GTA including Brampton,
Mississauga, Newmarket and Toronto (Sunnybrook Park). Participants collect
pledges with all the proceeds helping families in crisis, feeding and
providing shelter for the homeless and giving hope to those in need.
The Salvation Army Santa Shuffle Fun Run & Elf Walk originated in Alberta
and has spread nation-wide. On this same day from Victoria to St Johns,
shufflers will be out in support of The Salvation Army. More than 6,000 people
participated in 34 cities across the country in 2006, raising almost $400,000.
When you give to The Salvation Army, you are giving hope today by
investing in the future of marginalized and overlooked people in your
community. The Salvation Army began its work in Canada in 1882, and quickly
became vital in assisting the spiritual and social needs of our country.
