When you give to The Salvation Army, you are investing in the future of marginalized and overlooked people in your community
Pledges raised for the Santa Shuffle will support people in your community who may be struggling to make ends meet. Participants that raise over $50 in pledges will receive a free Santa Shuffle pledge incentive item. Participants that raise over $250 in pledges will receive a free pledge incentive and a Running Room gift card.

What It's All About...
All funds raised through this years Toronto Santa Shuffle will be going directly to The Salvation Army Gateway, a shelter and Drop-in center for individuals experiencing homelessness and marginalization.
Although The Gateways programming has been restricted due to COVID-19, were still operating 54 shelter beds at 100% capacity and continue to provide 40 take-out meals each day for our local Drop-in community.
The annual operating cost for our Drop-in has increased to approximately $100,000. 75% of these funds are used to provide food for Drop-in guests, and the remaining 25% covers the staffing costs and PPE required to safely provide support to those who need it.
We were able to fully fund our 2022 Drop-in as a result of the money raised through last years Toronto Santa Shuffle, and we hope to do the same again for 2023.
Please register now and join us for this years in-person event to help us reach our goal!!
To help reduce the risk of COVID - 19 we will be taking the following precautions:
Limiting our event registration to 750 participants.
