Santa Hustle 5K

November 24, 2012 7:45:39 AM PST
This holiday season, you can join in an event that is just perfect for this season. Thousands of Santas are getting ready to run along Chicago's lakefront to help kids in need.

The 4th Annual Santa Hustle 5K (www.SantaHustle.com), brought to you by Variety Children's Charity (www.varietyofillinois.org) and Adrenaline Sports Management (http://www.adrenalinesportsmanagement.com/), helps "Variety Children's Charity of Illinois," and Amy Key, Chairman of the Board with Variety, came into our ABC7 studio to tell us how you can still be part of the race. At the Santa Hustle race, Variety will be presenting kids with sports wheelchairs in observance of "International Persons with Disabilities Day," which takes place on Monday, December 3.
