All funds raised go to support adults with disabilities in the Las Vegas area
It’s Christmas in July as registration opens for the 19th Annual Las Vegas Great Santa Run on July 1. As one of the primary fundraisers for Opportunity Village, participation in the 5k run or 1-mile Kris Kringle Jingle walk directly supports people with disabilities in Southern Nevada.
This year, the Las Vegas Great Santa Run, presented by Circle K, is scheduled for Dec. 2 in Downtown Las Vegas. The festivities begin at 8 a.m., with the 5k run starting at 10 a.m. The 1-mile Kris Kringle Jingle starts at 10:30 a.m.

For those who prefer a virtual experience, simply select the virtual option during registration and complete your run by Dec. 2. Pets are also welcome to attend the Las Vegas Great Santa Run, with a $10 pet registration that includes a pet swag bag.
“We are making this year’s Las Vegas Great Santa Run bigger and better than ever, with fun prizes for fundraising efforts, great entertainment, and surprises for our runners and walkers,” said Bob Brown, President and CEO of Opportunity Village.
