2020 Sooke Santa Run

The 27th annual “Santa Run” will take place on Saturday, December 12th starting at dusk (5ish). Presented by the Sooke Firefighter’s Association and IAFF Local 4841, the annual Santa Run is a well-loved holiday tradition in Sooke. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of firefighters from the District of Sooke, Otter Point, and East Sooke, much-needed donations are collected in support of the Sooke Christmas Bureau and local families in need.

Decorated with bright and colourful Christmas lights and playing festive holiday music, four trucks loaded with Santa and helpers will be driving through neighbourhoods to spread holiday cheer.  While traditionally, the Santa Run has served as a means to gather cash and food donations and is a capstone of the firefighter’s annual Fill-a-Fire-Truck campaign, as with much of 2020, things will be a little bit different this year. Cash donations will be received online only, food donations will not be accepted this year. Learn more here.
