Deck the Heels 5K Night Run

December 12 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Held the second Saturday of December each year, The Deck the Heels 5k is not only a fun race, but, it is also a huge holiday extravaganza with Santa and Mrs. Clause, food, hot chocolate, music, and more! And of course there’s medals for those who complete the race. The race begins and ends at the Claire Parker Foundation headquarters at 1019 9th Street Altavista, VA. All proceeds go to filling care boxes and toy boxes.

Glow-in-the-Dark accessories will be available at packet pickup. We encourage runners to “Deck” themselves out for this festive Christmas event.

The Claire Parker Foundation was created in memory of our daughter, Claire. We provide ongoing care and emotional support for children and families battling pediatric cancer. To find out more about the work we do visit: claireparkerfoundation.org

Enjoy the Christmas season as you follow 7th street into the heart of downtown Altavista. The route will pass the YMCA, Town Hall, Post Office, and loop around Staunton River Public Library to come back down 7th street towards our foundation.

After the race please enjoy a food truck, live music, hot chocolate & coffee, pictures with Santa, and shopping at CPF headquarters with LEGO, Melissa & Doug, Green Toys, Plan Toys, Cobi Toys, Branded Bills and CC Beanie!
