Join The Santa Dash For Great Ormond Street

Dress up and raise funds for the world-famous kids' hospital

Join The Santa Dash For Great Ormond Street  In Wandsworth

This year's London Santa Dash will see a sea of Santas merrily descending on Clapham Common on December 3rd to take part in a 5K or 10K course to raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity (GOSH).

Festive activities to keep all the family entertained are also planned.

Last year thousands of runners turned up on the day and GOSH are hoping even more Santas will join this time round to raise money for seriously ill children. All participants will receive a complimentary Santa suit, a medal, a mulled drink and a mince pie at the finish line. With a snow machine and some inspirational GOSH patients taking part, what better way to warm up to the festive season!

How your money helps

Even at this special time of year, children, families and staff at GOSH are confronted with new challenges every single day. Every day, 618 children and young people from across the UK arrive at GOSH. Every day, doctors battle the most complex illnesses, and every day the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs.

By running together and fundraising, you will make a real difference to the seriously ill children at GOSH this Christmas. You’ll help fund a specialist Play therapy team, providing activities to aid children’s treatment, recovery and understanding of their illness, making their hospital experience as stress-free as possible.
