Fairbanks Centre in Shubie Park
What it’s all about?
The funds raised from this year’s Santa Shuffle will go towards community initiatives, families in need at Christmas, overnight stays in a shelter and many other programs. All funds raised from the Halifax Santa Shuffle stay local for initiatives specifically in HRM.
Did you know that $25.00 can provide 25 people a hot meal for one day? $50.00 provides an overnight stay in a shelter with a clean bed and hot meals. $150 a month provides a month’s worth of snacks for our school lunch bag snack program. Last year, The Salvation Army provided 7,879 food hampers to families in need across the Maritimes and provided 9,166 toys to children.
Every dollar raised counts, and helps us to continue providing services for those in need in our community. Please help raise funds for those who need it most this holiday season!
At the conclusion of the race, be sure to swing by our mobile canteen, or the snack kiosk behind Fairbanks Centre to pick-up your post-race meal. We will once again be offering the option of chili or hot chocolate.
We are hoping once again for a big crowd on race day. The parking lot at the Fairbanks Centre is very small. There is parking available all along the side streets surrounding the Fairbank Centre. Another option is to head back to the main road and proceed north to Jaybe Drive. Follow the road to the end past Shubie Campground and there is a baseball field with two more parking lots. From there it’s a short walk along the canal to the Fairbanks Centre. Arrive a little early to reduce your stress on race day.
