Kick-off the holiday season by running with hundreds of Santa Clad Runners in Downtown Albany on December 1 to support ABC House. There is a 5K and Rudolph Kids ½ Mile run.
ABC House is the child abuse intervention center serving Benton and Linn counties. The mission of our organization is to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect, supporting children as they find their voice and helping children and families heal and thrive.
We envision a world in which every child has the opportunity to be happy, healthy and safe; parents and caregivers understand the impact of their actions on children; and our community actively and vocally stands up to child abuse and neglect.
The Runaway Santa Run will take you on a tour of festive Downtown Albany and will take place prior to the Downtown Twice Around Christmas Parade. All participants receive a 5 piece Santa suit and holiday finisher medal. Runaway Santa Run participants will have the opportunity to join in the Downtown Twice Around Christmas Parade with ABC House after the run.
