The Christmas season is a time of happiness, sharing and joy for the luckiest among us. For millions of children, these are moments of loneliness when their reality becomes even more painful. It is to fight this that Concept+Partners has decided to create a unique event in Luxembourg: a 5km charity run of Santas in order to raise funds that will be 100% donated to PADEM. These funds will support this NGO which aims to improve the quality of life of vulnerable populations, especially children in developing countries.
To register for Santa Run Luxembourg, the fee is 20€ for those over 13 years old and 15€ for children aged 13 and under.
To run, you must absolutely be dressed in a Santa Claus costume. The costume is included in the registration fee. It will be given to you upon presentation of your receipt (on your smartphone) on the morning of the race between 8:30 and 9:30 am at Restaurant HITCH.
PADEM is the acronym for Programmes d’Aide et de Développement aux Enfants du Monde
The association was created in 2002. A Luxembourgish NGO whose original aim was to help the most deprived children: this is where PADEM got its name from. Present in 12 countries, PADEM provides support in developing countries through sustainable actions in the strictest respect for each culture.
Investing for children seems to be the best of causes and certainly the most sustainable. Thus, with several projects for a single objective, supporting PADEM is in a way supporting the world from Luxembourg.
During Santa Run, there is no timing. So there are no losers and only winners. Participating in SANTA RUN means supporting a cause and running for children.
Want to have a brunch after the run?
Our partner HITCH will offer you a snack with coffee, tea or water before the race and a hot or refreshing drink after the race. For all those who are hungry after the effort, HITCH will offer a Santa Brunch between 11:30 am and 2 pm for 30€ per person.
Gift wrapping and Santa Tree
To complete this beautiful day, we offer a gift wrapping service at HITCH after the race for everyone, not just Santa Run participants. All profits will also be donated to PADEM.
We will also have a Christmas tree under which you can deposit your material donations for children in need.
Mini Christmas market and photo exhibition
PADEM will propose a stand of fair trade products. The proceeds will go entirely to PADEM.
In addition to this, PADEM will present a series of photographs taken in the field during its humanitarian missions.
