The Grinch Loses out to Google

Here’s food for thought . . . When it comes to supporting some of San Jose’s most cherished holiday traditions, “the Grinch” loses out to Google when it comes to strengthening Christmas in the Park and Downtown Ice.

Our Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation is pleased to announce that Google has generously stepped in to serve as our Title Sponsor for our 6th Annual “Santa Run Silicon Valley,” slated for Sunday afternoon, December 17.

Google’s generous support allows us to further grow our Santa Run Silicon Valley, with a stretch goal to attract 5,000 paid participants for the 5-k race, run or walk.

Nothing will make you smile wider than watching 5,000 men, women and children – all dressed like Santa – chasing “the Grinch” – County Assessor Larry Stone – through Downtown San Jose.

The 5,000 Santa Claus-clad participants will literally be chasing the Grinch through downtown, ending at Christmas in the Park, where each Santa Runner will cross the finish line to a snow machine, greeted with milk and cookies, and a Finisher’s Medal that doubles as a Christmas tree ornament, suitable for hanging.

The Grinch tried to steal Christmas, but Google’s generosity is helping to save and strengthen Christmas in the Park.
