With Christmas being the furthest thing from your mind right now, it may be difficult for you to start thinking about registering for The Arc of the Piedmont’s 2019 Santa Fun Run and Walk…


Even though it may be a little too soon for Santa and his reindeer to come visit you, it’s not too early for you to register for this amazing event and become a CLAUS for the CAUSE! You can help those right here in your community with developmental disabilities by signing yourself OR a team up!

Click on The Arc Santa Run to register!

The Arc of the Piedmont’s 6th Annual Santa Fun Run and Walk will be held on Sunday, December 8th in front of the Sprint Pavilion on the historic Downtown Mall!

This one mile Santa Run is one of the Arc’s most important fundraisers of the year. There will be prizes for companies and families that raise the most money, so please DON’T HESITATE to register a group!! Adults 12+ are $25 and children 3 to 11 are $15. Under 3 is free! 

If you are registering a team and are interested in being a team captain, simply click on The Arc Santa Run and register to start recruiting your team! As a team captain you will be in charge of setting your team’s fundraising goal and organizing the team events. However, don’t be intimidated! You can recruit your friends to help you and can give them each responsibilities as well!

Fundraising will be an essential part of being a team captain. Whether this includes making a team Facebook page to help spread the word, or getting out in the community and hosting events, FUNDRAISING IS IMPORTANT! As a team captain, always be sure to keep your teammates motivated and interested in the cause we promote here at The Arc!

All proceeds raised from our Santa Run go towards funding The Arc’s building campaign to provide a newer and larger day support program center to support the programs and services The Arc of the Piedmont provides for people in Charlottesville and the surrounding community living with developmental disabilities.
