You provide the running shoes, we’ll provide the suit… Santa suit, that is! Participate in this great local holiday event, celebrating 10 Years and Running. Start your own holiday tradition with your office team while supporting a worthy cause!  
The 2017 Rotary Santa Run will be held on Saturday, December 2 at 10 a.m. Make this year’s holiday season merrier and register your entire office for the event. While the 5k Run/1-mile Walk is open to folks of all ages and abilities, it’s also chip-timed for the more competitive members of your team. With over 1,500 Santas cruising through downtown Arlington Heights, there’s plenty of ho ho holiday cheer to go around. 

Getting fellow employees involved not only makes for a fun team-building event, but provides your organization an opportunity to give back to the community. Your participation provides vital funding to numerous local, regional, and international charities. Over the 10 years we’ve been running with Santa, the Arlington Heights Rotary Club has raised over $250,000 for worthy causes in and around our area.
