Annual Rí Rá Santa 5K benefits Camp Ta-Kum-Ta

N-4-S-Ri-Ra-Santa-5KPlease join New England Federal Credit Union on Sunday, Dec. 1, at 10 am in front of Rí Rá Irish Pub on Church Street for the 3rd Annual Rí Rá Santa 5K Run and Walk. It is anticipated that over 2,000 Santas will take to the streets of downtown Burlington. The Santas will start and finish on Church Street outside of Rí Rá Irish Pub. Runners and walkers from all over New England and Canada will join in on the fun as they kick-off the Christmas season. All race participants receive a Santa suit to be worn during the event and to keep. Plus a free, full hot breakfast for all participants after the race.

The event is a proud supporter of Camp Ta-Kum-Ta. Runners are encouraged to collect pledges in support of their run for the camp. The participant who raises the most money will receive a $1,000 gift certificate to Von Bargen’s Jewelry.

There will be other great prizes, including running jackets, gift certificates, and more for the top fundraisers. Donations are accepted online and on race day. Every donation helps Camp Ta-Kum-Ta give a child those most precious gifts: fun, joyful memories, and the freedom to be a kid.
