LAS VEGAS – I spy with my little eye …
For this year’s virtual Las Vegas Great Santa Run, Opportunity Village is welcoming Santa runners, elves and just your average Joes from all across the Las Vegas Valley and beyond to compete in its final social media campaign of the season: the Scavenger Hunt Contest!
From November 19-December 20, Las Vegas Great Santa Run and Opportunity Village supporters are encouraged to visit and take selfies in front of one – or all – of the event’s sponsor locations to enter for a chance to win awesome prizes! Non-locals can also participate in their areas around the country where the four businesses are located. Two social media winners will be selected randomly in a drawing and notified after December 23!
Race registration is not required to enter, and the number of entries depends on how many locations each participant visits and posts about on social media. One sponsor visit – or photo – equals a single entry, whereas 10 entries will be given to the competitors that snap photos at all locations. Participants are asked to post their picture(s) publicly on either Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, using #LVSantaRun and tagging the Santa Run pages.
“During this challenging year, we’ve had so many community partners step up to the plate and support the wonderful people with disabilities we serve at Opportunity Village,” said Casey Parisi, Race Director. “This Scavenger Hunt Contest is a way for us to thank and highlight those businesses while also giving the public a chance to win great prizes during the holidays.”
The virtual Las Vegas Great Santa Run will take place Dec. 5-26 and can be completed at any convenient location. Participants can register for $30 and find details on the race’s I Run For campaign and Fundraising and Pet Costume contests at LVSantaRun.com. Online registration ends Sunday, Nov. 29. All registrations include a Santa suit (while supplies last), a finishers' medal, a virtual goody bag, a custom print-at-home race bib and the opportunity to be a part of one of the largest gatherings of Santas in the world.
All funds raised from the Las Vegas Great Santa Run go back into the programs and services at Opportunity Village.
About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to enhance their lives and the lives of their families.
Seven families who were determined to give their children with disabilities the best lives possible founded Opportunity Village in 1954. Now, more than six decades later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected organizations of its type in the United States.
Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, Opportunity Village serves nearly 2,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs and services that make their lives more purposeful and interesting.
Opportunity Village citizens – individuals who were previously considered unemployable – work at Opportunity Village’s Employment Resource Centers and in jobs throughout the community, collectively earning wages amounting to more than $3.7 million in 2016. They are hardworking and diligent, proudly paying taxes and happily leading more fulfilling lives.
Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts and fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, saving Nevada taxpayers more than $37 million annually.
