Taking place in 38 cities across Canada, from Victoria to St. John’s, N.L., the 28th annual Santa Shuffle saw more than 16,000 people run or walk in support of The Salvation Army in December. Presented in partnership with The Running Room, the five-kilometre run and one-kilometre Elf Walk raised more than $600,000 for the Army.
In keeping with Santa Shuffle tradition, participants dressed in festive gear, from Santa suits to reindeer costumes, often braving cold temperatures for the event. Many locations offered participants hot drinks and food, as well as a commemorative Santa Shuffle medal.
The Ottawa Salvation Army held its largest event to date—the largest in the territory—attracting more than 1,500 participants.
