The Santa Hustle 5K and Half Marathon will return to the Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, December 16, 2018. Participants will sport Santa hats, beards and a Santa-themed sweatshirt for the 5K and half marathon run/walk, starting at 7:30AM. Cookie and candy stations will be available through the course.
The holiday season is the perfect time to give back! Proceeds from The Santa Hustle will benefit Glendale Fire Charities. Every day Glendale Firefighters risk their lives to help those in need while working 24 hour shifts; while off duty, last year, they made a difference in the community by volunteering over 8000 hours to support numerous local community causes including: Hope for Hunger Food Bank, Glendale Firefighters Annual Toy Drive, Glendale Firefighters Back to School Drive, neighborhood smoke detector and water safety walks, and donations of services, food and money to Glendale families in need.
The Santa Hustle event is also an official drop-off spot for unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots program. The Arizona Santa Hustle is currently looking for local sponsors, partners and community organizations to support the Santa Hustle event.
