CHICO, Calif. - The 3rd annual Santa Shuffle took place Saturday at One Mile in Chico's Bidwell Park.
More than 800 runners wore their Santa hats and were in a festive mood to run either a mile or a 5k route.
Each runner donated forty dollars to the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army says it is even more important to donate now since the Camp Fire broke out.
Arwyn Rodriguera is a spokesperson for the Salvation Army. She said, "This past month a lot of us have to just been struggling to survive, and this run goes to support our ongoing work with survivors."
Rodriguera said there is a lot to be joyful about right now, such as the Salvation Army's ongoing Homelessness Prevention Services in Chico.
Action News Now anchor Debbie Cobb handed out medals to runners when they crossed the finish line.
You can help the Salvation Army over the holidays by donating at any store with a barrel and a bellringer.
