Help the Salvation Army serve

Become a Santa Shuffle sponsor and make a contribution to helping the needy in Quesnel

ast year

Across the nation, Santa Shuffle participants enjoy the last run of the season with a 5 km Fun Run or 1 km Elf Walk. Runners and walkers collect pledges to help raise funds in support of their local Salvation Army’s programs and services.

Sponsorship allows you business or corporation to brand itself with one of the world’s most trusted and recognized charities.

Your sponsorship dollars provide the necessary funding to launch and support the Santa Shuffle, while affording local exposure to your business.

Just like Santa, The Salvation Army takes on big challenges, providing basic necessities such as food, clothing and shelter to more than 1.8 million Canadians in need each year.

The gifts they give to vulnerable people include affordable housing, respite care, food hampers, shelter services and support for families.

Each year, more than 16,000 Canadians participate in the Santa Shuffle and enjoy time with family and friends to help neighbours in need.

The day starts with a great warm-up and after the run, each participant is handed a finisher’s medal to celebrate their accomplishment and highlight their commitment to building a stronger community.

To find out how you can become a Santa Shuffle sponsor, contact Laura Van Schaick by E-mail, laura_van_schaick@can.salvationarmy.org or call 250-255-5238.
