New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Don your speedo's for a good cause or join the Family Run
The 6500 Santa Speedo Shuffle will be held on 30th July, to raise money and awareness for local families living with Cystic Fibrosis - an inherited recessive genetic disorder that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. Now in its 6th year, they are hoping to get 200 brave souls to strip down to their speedos, don a Santa hat and shuffle for 65 mins around the Central Loop of Lake Burley Griffin. Freezing - yes! But all for a good cause!
The shuffle will begin at the Southern Cross Yacht Club at Yarralumla at 10am. Entry for the Santa Speedo Shuffle is free to all participants, however, each team (max 6 Santa's) must raise a minimum of $2,000 by 9am on the day of the event. Registrations close on June 30. A Santa outfit will be provided.
If getting down to your speedo's isn't your thing, then join Christmas in July Family Fun Run! Get dressed up in a festive outfit and walk or run alongside the Speedo Shufflers. Registrations cost $35 for adults, $15 for kids under 12 (under 5's free). See the website for details.
