If there’s something the holiday season could use a little bit more of, it’s exercise. And you might as well support a good cause while you do it.

The Santa Shuffle is an annual fun run presented by the Salvation Army. Every year millions of runners across Canada strap on their running shoes and don their Santa hats for a charity run taking place in over 40 cities. By collecting pledges before they run, Santa Shufflers have been responsible for tens of millions of dollars in charitable donations and funding.

The Vancouver event takes runners through beautiful Stanley Park, starting at the Luberman’s Arch near Coal Harbour. Funds raised through the Santa Shuffle go to support community relief programs such as daily meals, clothing, and shelters.

Here are a few of the things the Salvation Army can do with just $50:

  • Deliver 25 pairs of socks
  • Feed a family of four for a week
  • Deliver five personal care kits to people in Salvation Army shelters
  • Provide two blankets

Registration is $20 for kids 12 and under, and $30 for adults.
