Sooke’s Santa Run on schedule for December 13

Donations for the Sooke Food Bank accepted curbside, track the trucks online

The Sooke “Santa Run” is an annual event held by Sooke Fire Rescue Service.  This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 13, beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Every year since 1993, Sooke firefighters have paraded through Sooke with decorated fire trucks, handing out treats to kids, and collecting non-perishable goods for the Sooke Food Bank. Last year, the Santa Run collected approximately $30,000.00 in food and toys, as well as $11,375.00 in cash donations!

This year, four fire trucks will tour around the District of Sooke on four different routes.

Red Route 1 – Town Centre and Broom Hill

Green Route 2 – Whiffin Spit and John Muir

Blue Route 3 – Sooke Road

Orange Route 4 – Sunriver

 

A fun NEW feature is the ability to track each truck LIVE.

On December 13 as each truck leaves the firehall, their locations will be tracked using the District of Sooke’s mapping system. Updates on their locations will be available on social media!

Follow us to see when the trucks will be in your neighbourhood.
