This Christmas, we want to see you “dashing through the snow, on a…” bike, scooter or by foot as you take on our Virtual Santa Run 2023!

By getting suited up as Santa and completing your bespoke route – whether this is in your back garden, local neighbourhood, park or even around your office; you’ll be helping to spread the festive cheer here at Rainbows. To say “thank you” for your fantastic festive support, when you receive your Santa Suit in the post, there will also be a special Rainbows Christmas medal!

Our Virtual Santa Run 2023 is yours to complete however you want. From biking to scooting, hopping, walking or jogging. It’s also a great way to get your Santa Paws involved too… and to help with the festive feel, we have special dog bandanas available for them to wear, helping them to look the part.


  • Adult: £17 (prices includes postage)
  • Children: £10 (prices includes postage)
  • Doggy Bandana: £3

Festive fundraising:

Christmas is the season of goodwill, and while there is no requirement to fundraise while taking part in our Virtual Santa Run 2023, we would be very grateful for any amount you’re able to raise. Rainbows receives roughly 18% of its funding from government bodies, so we rely on donations from people like you.

  • £5 could help towards funding a play session for a child or young person
  • £25 could help pay for one hour of care for one of our children, by a member of our specialist Care Team
  • £40 could help fund a memory making session with a family

For any supporter who raises £50+ during their Virtual Santa Run fundraising, we’ll send out a Rainbows gift as a thank you.

Smiling Santas – perfect for social media:

We’d also love to see your photos as you take part, so make sure you tag us in any posts you put on social. We’ll be sure to shout about your fantastic achievements in helping us brighten short lives!
