4th Annual Santa Scamper (5K) Fun Run @ Eastwood Beach – Stony Creek Metropark

  • December 1, 2019
We're hoping you can dust off your running shoes, put the Thanksgiving leftovers down, grab a Santa hat and join us in raising money to bring joy to children touched by cancer. Inspired by Ella Tosch who lost her battle in September of 2015 but adored this time of year, we'll be loading up our own sleigh with toys and paying Children's Hospital and The Ronald McDonald House of Detroit another visit just in time for Christmas. We're sure Santa won't mind the extra help! Registration for the 5K is $25 but everyone is welcome. Feel free to walk, run, trot, jog or scamper.  We'll have a route mapped out so you don't risk running into the abominable snowman off the main path.
