The Reindeer Dash
Spread festive cheer for Sunderland charities this Christmas as The Reindeer Dash zooms into the Bridges shopping centre this December!
Brought to you by the Bridges and Sunderland BID, this magical fun-run encourages little ones to don their antlers, polish those red noses and whistle round the shops! Little prancers will also be invited to Santa’s enchanting winter wonderland, so make sure you have those all- important wish lists ready!
Registration kicks off at 9am and the run begins at 9.45am, giving families the chance to raise money for the Foundation of Light and Red Sky Ball.
For all the information you need, head over to the Bridges website!
