Kevin Mirallas has thrown his support behind the 2013 Liverpool Santa Dash and is calling on runners to take part on behalf of Everton in the Community.
The race is a flagship event that draws huge crowds year on year. Runners of all ages and abilities grace the streets of the city centre in the most festive of races.
“The Santa Dash seems like great fun and is something that anyone can get involved with,” Mirallas said of this year’s event, which takes place on Sunday 1 December.
“I hope a lot of Everton fans take part and raise money for Everton in the Community."
Now in its 10th year, the annual Santa Dash will look to reclaim its title from the Las Vegas World Challenge by having a greater number of Santas than its American counterpart, having lost the crown to the Trans-Atlantic dash last year.
Due to the intense demand, all suits have now been claimed, but Everton in the Community is on the lookout for a number of Santas to take part in the audacious record attempt and raise money for the Club’s official charity.
Past runners of note have included Everton’s 1987 title-winner Ian Snodin and the Club’s leading-post war goalscorer, Graeme Sharp.
The work carried out by Everton Football Club’s official charity is both diverse and ground breaking, providing routes into education, training and employment, steering young people away from crime and anti-social behaviour, and also engages with children and adults, regardless of ability, in physical activity. In addition to helping individuals, it also assists other charitable groups that benefit the lives of local people.
Those interested in running on behalf of Everton in the Community should contact Amy Judge at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0151 530 5260.
