“My favorite parts of the Santa Run was when the skydrivers fell with their santa suits on and the actual walk itself was fun,” junior Johana Mendoza said.
Over 8,200 participants attended the Santa Run. Las Vegas won, for the second year in a row, the World Santa Challenge to have the most people dressed as santa and raised over $400,000 for individuals with disabilities.
“I absolutely enjoyed the Santa Run and how everyone came together to help the wonderful cause of Opportunity Village,” DECA adviser Mr. Perry Annett said.
As part of the event, Santa Skydivers jumped out of helicopters thousand of feet up in the air and local musicians also performed on-site.
