    Get into the Holiday Spirit with Exercise & Fun!

    The Paw Paw Area Rotary Club is hosting its 10th Annual 5K Santa Run and 1Mile Fun Walk on Saturday, December 11, 2021 at Freshwater Community Church.  Proceeds from the Run will be used to further the Rotary Club’s efforts locally & worldwide. 

    Each participant receives a 5-piece Santa suit that is worn during the Run/Walk (kids under 12 receive a Santa hat). A $100 donation will be made to Rotary International's WASH program on behalf of the men's and the women's 1st place runners.  Through water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs, Rotary’s people of action mobilize resources, form partnerships, and invest in infrastructure and training that yield long-term change.

    The Santa Run is a fun event for participants and spectators alike.  You’ll be filling the town with Christmas Cheer as one of the hundreds of Santas running through downtown Paw Paw!
