Las Vegas Great Santa Run Announces Fundraising Competition for Virtual Participants

One of Opportunity Village’s largest single-day fundraisers, the Las Vegas Great Santa Run, just raised the stakes for its participants this year.

With the Las Vegas Great Santa Run switching to a virtual format in 2020, race officials are excited to announce an all-new Fundraising Competition that will be open to the public now through December 20. The top three fundraisers of the contest will guarantee themselves the top prizes, while anyone who raises $100 or more will be automatically entered into a random drawing featuring additional amazing prizes!

“As the world navigates COVID-19, we at Opportunity Village thought it would be a great idea to create a fun incentive for our runners that would also benefit the wonderful people we serve,” said Casey Parisi, Race Director. “We’re thankful for all of our sponsors and community partners for stepping up and donating items that will surely make this a can’t-miss contest.”

To enter the fundraising competition, visit LVSantaRun.com and click the green “fundraise” button at the top of the page. Prizes include staycations, dining experiences, Las Vegas Aces autographed memorabilia and gear and gas gift cards from the event’s presenting sponsor, Circle K.

Opportunity Village’s fundraising goal for this year’s Las Vegas Great Santa Run is $15,000. Not running the race this year? That’s okay! Fundraising teams and donations can still be made to support adults with disabilities. And even better, all donations made through the contest will be matched up to $1 million thanks to one of Opportunity Village’s partners.

The virtual Las Vegas Great Santa Run will take place Dec. 5-26 and can be completed anywhere at any time. Register for $30 and join the race’s “I Run For” campaign at LVSantaRun.com. All registrations include a Santa suit (while supplies last), a finishers’ medal, a virtual goody bag, a custom print-at-home race bib and the opportunity to be a part of one of the largest gatherings of Santas in the world.

All funds raised from the Las Vegas Great Santa Run go back into the programs and services at Opportunity Village.
