In Pictures: 5th annual New Canaan Santa Run held in New Canaan

NEW CANAAN — Cold, clammy weather didn’t dampen the holiday spirit of the 5th annual New Canaan Santa Run, held Saturday morning at New Canaan High School.

“We wanted people to be together, to be doing things for other people, and to give back in some way to the community,” said Julia Hughes, who chaired the event that was started through Grace Community Church.

Close to 250 people—many in Santa-related garb—took part in the charity event, which included a 5K, a one-mile walk, and a kids’ fun run.

Proceeds went to the Houston Food Bank, which continues to provide hurricane relief in Texas.

“No one’s thinking about Houston anymore,” Hughes noted, hoping to inspire continued support.
