Dec 04 2010 Santa Run To Benefit Legal Aid The YWCA in downtown Minneapolis
1130 Nicollet Mall
Minneapolis, MN
Minnesota Twin Cities

Time: 4pm

The Santa Run to Benefit Legal Aid is a Run/Walk/push your stroller of 1and ¼ miles down Nicollet Mall on December 1 2007, at 4pm Your $10 registration fee gets you a red Santa suit, hat & white beard; children 12 and under get a Santa hat. The Santa Run is great fun for all – hundreds of red-coated Santas taking off down the mall – all to raise money for free civil legal services for poor & disadvantaged Minnesotans. There’s music & hot chocolate & enough Santas to make even Scrooge giggle!

Cost: Registration fee is $10, and each participant is asked to raise at least $100 in sponsorships.  Although this seems like a lot, especially for a law student, I have found that it is quite easy if you send a message to a large contingent of your friends and family members (the more the better, but at least 10) and ask if they would be willing to pay $10 (or more if you are feeling saucy) to see you run through downtown Minneapolis in a Santa suit and beard while coincidentally contributing to legal aid for under-privileged individuals.
