Christmas can be a difficult time for many people in our communities, and for those who have been touched by suicide, Christmas is never quite the same.

Rudolph’s Run reminds us all that the true spirit of Christmas is all about connecting with those around us, and what better way than getting together with a group of friends, gym mates, work colleagues and family for a fun, active event!
