VIDEO: Santa Rec Run is a huge success

The Santa Rec Run attracted more than 100 participants who helped raise money for the Youth Outdoor Recreation Society.



The Santa Rec Run, presented by the Bears Den Restaurant and Hoodoo Adventures, got people into the holiday spirit early by breaking a sweat with  five and 10-kilometre run/walks.

The event attracted 150 people, resulting in $2,000 being raised to support the Youth Outdoor Recreation Society, a newly founded not-for-profit subsidy program that funds outdoor recreation opportunities for schools in the Okanagan-Skaha School District; including kayaking, hiking, biking, rappelling, adventure based learning, group development, and leadership.

“It was our biggest run by far,” said Lyndie Hill, owner of Hoodoo Adventures. “It was a huge success.”

Hill said it was wonderful to have the increase in participants as it will allow them to put more programming into the schools.

Participants enjoyed a chilly, yet sunny Saturday morning.

“I couldn’t ask for better weather. I think the sun came out just for us,” Hill joked.
