Get ready to Romp for Mental Health as annual Reindeer Romp celebrates 19 years

Only 23 days to Christmas Eve 2023, and that means only 23 days to the Annual Reindeer Romp!

In spite of a pandemic, the annual Christmas Eve (day) Reindeer Romp carried on through, albeit in a virtual format and, now in 2023, it’s time to celebrate the 19th Annual Reindeer Romp.

It’s that time of year when you can have fun dressing up in your best reindeer outfit or in your favourite seasonal colours in celebration of winter, the holidays and … a good cause.

Coming out of a pandemic, mental health has become more important than ever and all entry ‘fees’ by donation will go to Bruce Shoreline, the local Grey-Bruce branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association to support its mental health initiatives, such as the Social Recreation Program and the Community Kitchen. Tax receipts will be issued by CMHA Grey-Bruce.

‘Romping’ has become a Christmas Eve-day that starts at 9AM on Sunday, December 24th at Fitness Corner in Southampton.ย  You can walk, jog or run 2k or 5k. This is a FUN participation event, NOT A RACE and entry is by donation.
