Cash For Kids Launch Santa Dash 2014

Cash for Kids is bringing Santa Dash back to Belfast City centre for the 3rd year! This year’s 2.5km dash is sponsored by CastleCourt shopping centre, and will take place at Custom House Square on Sunday 7th December at 11.30am.

Cash for Kids launches “Santa Sign Up” for Santa Dash Belfast City

Paul McMahon from CastleCourt joined Cash for Kids and Cool FM breakfast show host Pete Snodden yesterday to launch this year’s Cash for Kids Santa Dash! Cash for Kids is the children’s charity of Downtown Radio and Cool FM, raising money to support disadvantaged children all over Northern Ireland. This year Cash for Kids will be supporting the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice with all funds raised from the dash. Santa Dash which has been running for the past three years, has become one of the most colourful and fun dates in Belfast’s festive calendar.

Last year’s event saw 400 Father Christmases jogging the 2.5km route as part of the Santa Dash and this year Cash for Kids charity manager Stephanie Laverty hopes to make this the biggest and best dash of Saint Nicks yet!  “This is the third year of this fantastic, fun Christmas event and registration is now open! We had a great turnout last year and this year we’re hoping for even more families and groups to be a ‘claus for a good cause’ and help us support the NI Children’s Hospice. This year’s Cash for Kids Santa Dash is scheduled to start at Custom House Square on Sunday 7th December at 11.30am.”

Potential Santa’s can register online at or to take part in this year’s event, and registration includes a free Santa Suit!

Paul McMahon from event sponsors CastleCourt said, “We’re delighted to be involved in Cash for Kids Santa Dash again this year. The event has grown to become a central part of Belfast’s Christmas celebrations. It’s the perfect way to kick off Christmas - a great, fun activity for people of all ages which will also help raise vital funds to provide care for local children living with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions and their families.”
