Rape Crisis Center to Host 8th Annual Reindeer Run & Holiday Market

The Rape Crisis Center of the Coastal Empire will host the 8th Annual Savannah Reindeer Run 8K and Holiday Market on December 16th at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center.

The Reindeer Run is one of Savannah’s best family-oriented run events. The morning will begin with a kiddie race at 8:45, followed by the 8K at 9:00. Inside, families and runners will enjoy a kid zone, a cookie contest, food, beverages and even a visit from Santa. Runners are encouraged to dress as their favorite holiday characters for a chance to win a prize.

Ten Celebrity Runners have been challenged to raise $1,250 in advance of the race. This year’s Celebrity Runners are Michael Brooks, Amber Lynn Carroll, Karen Daiss, Regan Drake, Sean Evans, Paula Kreissler, Tharon Lambert, David Pence, Chelsea Phillips, and Ben Senger. Community members can donate to any of the celebrity runners’ campaigns at https://give.everydayhero.com/us/2017-celebrity-reindeer runners.

Proceeds from the Reindeer Run will support the Prevention Education program at the Rape Crisis Center, which offers healthy relationship resources and training for local schools, colleges and organizations, including Good-Touch/Bad- Touch, Safer, Smarter Kids, Bullying Prevention, Safe Dates, and Sexual Harassment curriculum.
