    Festive runners are ready to hit the road at Sunnybrook Park in Toronto
    Taking place in 41 cities across Canada, the 27th 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.

    From elf ears to Santa suits to reindeer onesies, runners and shufflers dressed in festive gear, 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, while Toronto runners raised the most funds, collecting over $40,000 in pledges for the Army.
