Still Time to Sign Up for Crystal Lake Kiwanis Santa Run/Reindeer Walk Sunday Morning at 9

Look at this marvelous Santa Run graphic designed by McHenry County College student Christian Andrick.

Crystal Lake Kiwanis is sponsoring in conjunction with local charities which help kids.

As of last Wednesday’s Kiwanis luncheon, 482 people had signed up to run in Santa costumes on what will be a really good running Sunday.

Crystal Lake Santa Run organizer Mike Splitt shows off costume that each Santa participate will be provided. Reindeer Dash participants will get antlers.  Kiwanis meets twice a month for lunch.

This is a huge turnout for a first-time event.

No trudging through the snow on December 2nd (but no guarantees for 2013).
