Have you ever had an activity or experience that you’re like “Wow! Why did we stop doing this?” That’s exactly what happened at this year’s Santa Fun Run. After a few years’ hiatus, the folks at SOS Outreach inspired us to bring back the run & boy was it a blast. BUT, the best part… we raised a bunch of money to help the next generation of youth make positive decisions for healthy & successful lives. Talk about a win-win!

Run Up That? In The SNOW?!?!

Santa Fun Run Himmel HausThe hardest thing about runs is they’re either WAY too hard or a bit too easy. But just like Goldilocks, the Santa Fun Run from our cozy neighborhood café to the Bierstube at the base of Heavenly is perfect. People say things like, “You ran up that?!?!? In the Snow?!?” So, at the end, it also brings a sense of accomplishment. Luckily, the distance from Blue Angel Café to the Himmel Haus is only 1.2 miles. A short distance, a slight incline mixed with a bit of determination… you’ll make it! And we’ll be there to cheer you on!

Great People & $1,200 Raised

Santa Fun RunAs soon as people started showing up at our spot, we felt like it was a big, happy holiday reunion. Friends we hadn’t seen in a long time & new ones we’d just met were all mingling together & enjoying each other’s company. It was way beyond our expectations! As the dust settled & raffle items given away, we raised over $1,200 for SOS Outreach.

For those that made it to the Santa Fun Run, we’d love to share your pics. Hashtag #SantaFunRunTahoe & we’ll be sure to share our favorites via social media.
