Salvation Army Santa Shuffle

The Salvation Army held it’s annual Santa Shuffle 5k run and 1K Elf Walk in a number of cities Saturday, including Hamilton. Over 250 participants gathered at St. Mary’s H.S. in the west end, dressed in Santa suits, hats, and other seasonal garb. All monies raised go directly to the local Christmas kettle campaign, which brings some holiday joy to those who struggle at this time of year. Here’s a look at some participants, including Santa himself. – Barry Gray
