Join us for the premier holiday event of the season in Plano! This 5K Fun Run & 1 Mile Walk allows you and 3,000 other participants to dress up in a five-piece Santa suit (included with your registration) and have fun at Santa Run’s holiday festival! This family-centered, untimed, community-based event is a great way to bring friends, families, businesses and social groups together to celebrate the holiday season! This event is so much more than just a 5K/1Mile, featuring live music, the world's largest snowman bouncehouse, a life-sized snow globe photo booth, and MORE! This event is also a Toys for Tots donation site.
Both the 1M Walk and the 5K Run will be untimed, but there will be awards given out for the following categories: Overall Race Winner - 18 and older (Male and Female), Overall Race Winner - under 18 (Male and Female), Largest Team, Best Dressed Pet, Most Spirited Santa, Best Dressed Santa, and Best Sleigh (stroller, wagon, or wheel chair).
One-hundred percent of the proceeds made at this event will go back to the programs at My Possibilities (MP), which is a local non-profit that provides continuing education to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. As a pioneering leader in vocational education for adults with cognitive disabilities, MP provides instruction for independent living skills, culinary skills, creative expression, health and wellness, as well as a variety of other enrichment programs, all of which are designed to stimulate the cognitive and creative abilities of their clients, lovingly referred to as HIPsters – Hugely Important People.
