Run Santa, Run!

The Canaan team and some of our friends are going to be taking part in a sponsored Santa Run on 8th December to raise money for the projects valuable work. Running to raise money for a charitable organisation is something that we see every year and we know that the hundreds of thousands of pounds that are being raised for the different charities will make a big difference. So what is so fun about running in a santa outfit and sweating for a few hours?

For me, the one that runs for the bus and is out of breath (not boasting), it is taking me out of my comfort zone to raise money for a cause I believe in. That cause is investing in young women’s lives and seeing them flourish. That makes me want to put the effort in and to be fair it is going to be a lot of effort. The money raised will go towards activities and projects that give the young women the opportunity to try new things, have positive new experience, enabling them broaden their aspiration and reach their dream – skies the limit right?

As Whitney Houston said “I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside…” That is what we are working towards.

I am going to be that Santa that is going to be running with a purpose and that is supporting the work that the Canaan Project does, but also for each one of those young women we come in contact with. I want to run to make a difference.
