MEDIA GALLERY: Santa Shuffle kicks off holiday season

December 1st marks the beginning of holiday season, and the beginning of Santa runs nation-wide

The Santa Shuffle happens across the Canada in 18 different cities on December 1st, and brings together hundreds of runners together in support of the charity. The event started 28 years ago in Edmonton and has become a nation-wide run.
