Christmas in Cooroy has become one of the Sunshine Coast’s most popular family events for good reason. Every year the festival offers astounding free entertainment, rides, and giveaways for everyone.
This year, the tireless team of helper elves that build this wonderful family festival have really outdone themselves and added a new level of fun for all ages! It is with excitement that we unveil the ‘Bentleys Great Santa Stroll’.
You just need a big smile and your loudest “Ho Ho Ho” and a Santa suit to join the Great Santa Stroll – although the first 50 registrants even get a free suit! The Great Santa Stroll occurs at the finish of the Bendigo Bank Street Parade, and the proud Santas will march up Maple St, spreading joy to all and collecting funds for the Leukaemia Foundation!
“This event replaces the previous Great Santa Race and is aimed at being more inclusive of all ages and abilities and we are hoping that means more people will get involved. The Bentleys Great Santa Stroll is a fantastic way for families to join the parade and see Christmas In Cooroy from a whole new angle! It should also raise a lot more money for the chosen charity, Leukaemia Foundation,” said event manager, Danielle Taylor.
Bentleys Sunshine Coast have generously sponsored this new event and in addition to their kind donation of 50 Santa suits, they have also kicked off the fundraising with $500 for the Leukaemia Foundation – the only national charity dedicated to helping those with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders survive and live a better quality of life. Every day, around Australia, 35 people will be diagnosed with one of these diseases.
Your support in the Great Santa Stroll means that this incredible charity can continue to bring smiles to families through the toughest of times. You can register to join the Bentleys Great Santa Stroll at www.ChristmasInCooroy.com.au under the ‘Competitions’ tab.
