Join us as we partner with Seamark Ranch, purchasing gifts for the children in their care to make their Christmas brighter and delivering them with a sense of style.
On December 1st, we're taking to the streets of Mandarin, decked out in costumes (think Santa, Ms. Claus, elves, gingerbread, etc). This daytime, fun run is the Good Santa Run! (Read about the Bad Santa Run below)
The Good Santa Run is open to the public and is family, stroller, and pup-friendly! Keep that in mind when costume planning.
How can you get involved?
Join the event page, and follow along as we post updates leading to event day. You can help by sponsoring a child and donating an unwrapped gift, by signing up for the event day's run, and/or by making a cash donation that will go directly to Seamark Ranch.
Details here: Facebook Event Page
On event day: We'll meet at One Night Taco Stand in Mandarin, dressed in our finest holiday-themed costumes, and will run/walk/jog/skip/hop a short trail through town loaded with our bags of gifts. Expect lots of off-key Christmas carols, impromptu dancing, and plenty of merriment as we work our way to the Seamark Ranch office where we'll deliver the presents.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST? It depends on how you choose to participate.
Jacksonville Santa Run Event Fee: $20 ($10 will go to the Ranch, $10 will go to the costs of the event)
Child sponsorship/Gift purchase: The wishlists for these kids accommodate every budget! Find the spreadsheet here
Contact Dewey on Facebook to make gift pledges.
Monetary donations: Variable. That's all up to you! Every extra dollar matters and 100% of the money collected will go to the ranch.
The Good Santa Run will end at the taco place with a couple hours to eat, drink, and hang out in celebration of our good deeds. THEN... the Bad Santa Run will commence. You can ditch the nice costumes for the naughty. Bad Santa will revert all our goodness back to our deranged selves with a traditional JaxH3 trail feel and plenty of alcohol along the way.
This successful operation will be commemorated with a unique Santa Run patch for any hashers who rego.
Cum for the Good, cum for the Bad, and/or stay home and participate virtually (in which you can cum however you like).
Santa, Christmas, etc.
Unwrapped gifts for children ages 6-17, $20 rego (if running with us), costumes, the feeling of joy and community
