2022 Santa Cause Run

This event promotes holiday spirit while raising money for inclusive playground equipment.  This will be the 7th year Kiwanis and Grand Junction Parks and Recreation have teamed up for the cause.  In the previous 6 years, the event has raised $16,477 for the cause.  The first completed project is the new wheelchair-accessible swing at Canyon View Park.  The first 300 entrants will receive a Santa suit or a race shirt to wear during the race.  What a sight it will be as a wave of red takes off down the trail!
