Ussain Santas
December 13th, 2013

We did it!

Last Sunday the long awaited day finally came and we got to don our Santa Suits and put all our training in to practice. 10 Canaan Project staff and trusty volunteers joined several thousand other Santas to run 5km round Victoria Park to raise money for our charity of choice – Canaan Project! It was a sight to behold. Its not every day you see a sea of Santas doing lunges and squats in the park and definitely turned a few heads. There was an amazing atmosphere and our team did us proud. We all managed to complete the course, suits intact and without swallowing our beards. Some of us even managed to find a bit of energy for a victory dance!

We’ve been so touched by the generosity of those who’ve sponsored us. The donations are not only an amazing help towards funding our work but also a massive encouragement that people share our belief that our work and young women are worth investing in. So I want to say a big thank you to all of you who have supported us. And if you haven’t made a donation yet and would like to, there’s still time!
