Reindeer Run for Charity
The Reindeer Run, presented by Half-Moon Outfitters, is a family-oriented, pet-friendly 5k run/walk through the lower peninsula of downtown Charleston starting at 9 a.m., December 7, near the corner of East Bay and Queen Street. There will be an after party in the official beer garden. The crowd-favorite costume contest begins around 10 a.m. behind the stage. Categories include adult individual, child individual, group and dog, with great prizes and gift cards from restaurants and attractions.
The event has grown from a few hundred participants to record attendance of more than 3,500 runners. The Charitable Society of Charleston (CSC) has donated more that $1,000,000 to MUSC Children’s Hospital, including $50,000 in 2017 alone.
Proceeds from the Reindeer Run are split between the campaign for the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and the Charitable Society of Charleston. The new MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital will provide more spacious, family-centered amenities and expanded services, including an expanded neonatal intensive care unit, an entire floor dedicated to te care of children with cancer and the most comprehensive pediatric heart center in South Carolina.
