This year, at the 5th edition of the Santa Run, over 40 Harley Davidson riders alongwith their families roared through the streets all dressed up as Santa Claus.

The routine for the Harley rider was the streets of Miramar - Panjim Church - Old Goa Ponda Bypass - Old Goa Church Square - Old Goa Ponda Bypass - Goa Medical College. The sight of bikers wearing the Santa Claus attire amazed the onlookers who got a glimpse of this spectacular sight.

THE IDEA OF THE SANTA RUN

Area Vice President Leisure Hotels, India & General Manager, Grand Hyatt Goa, Jaco Le Roux  said, “We are so proud to be able to host this annual iconic event for the fifth time this year. The idea was born one night when we were sitting around a fireplace having Christmas dinner and, earlier in the evening, witnessed beautiful Christmas carol singing by kids.”

He added that this gave them an idea to do something for the children who don't get to enjoy Christmas as much as they do. "So, this fun, colorful and high-energy event came to life; that we could do annually and hopefully become an iconic moment In Goa, every last Sunday before Christmas," he said.

FOR A CAUSE

The convoy of Santa Claus riders were also joined by the children of Bethesda Life Centre.

When the ride culminated at Grand Hyatt Goa, the celebration began. The team at Grand Hyatt Goa had organized a special party with a bouncy castle, trampoline and a whole lot of games for the Santa riders and kids of the hotel employees.

The get-together was brought to a befitting end with a special visit by Santa Claus who came riding to the venue on a Harley Davidson.

GIVING BACK TO THE SOCIETY

The rumble of the motorcycles ridden by Santas creates a unique feeling of excitement and coupled with the fun Christmas party held at the hotel leaves a lasting positive memory in the minds of the children.”

He hoped that this traditions carries forward and will help give back to society.
