ROCHESTER, N.Y. – The annual Santa Stampede took place on Sunday. The three-mile walk and run, which started at Fleet Feet at The Armory on Culver Road, brought out the Santa in everyone.
Hundreds of runners and walkers dressed in their Santa suits and spread cheer on the streets of Rochester.
The event benefited the Bivona Child Advocacy Center. Participants were encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped fleece blanket to donate to the Bivona Child Advocacy Center.
After the Stampede, the Santas went back to Fleet Feet for more holiday fun.
“Bivona Child Advocacy Center has been our beneficiary since the beginning of this event. Their work with children is not unlike Santa, so we find it fitting to combine the two,” states Ellen Brenner-Boutillier, Owner of Fleet Feet. “On Santa Stampede day, seeing the Santa’s jaunt along the sidewalks is a joy and smile filled event. People cheer and honk out their vehicle windows, those walking around always smile and laugh as we guide our way through. It’s truly a happy event.”
Everybody’s Santa suits were included in registration for the race.
