Captivating Santa Run
2017-12-15

[SCIE web news, Dec 15th, 2017] When the temperature drops so hard, this is the time when the air is even filled with Christmas scent. With such a spirit, teachers and students from SCIE volunteered themselves for a Captivating Christmas Party.

 

On the day of Dec. 9th, we took the bus to Central Park of Fishing Habour in Nanshan District. While the participants continuously arrived, we volunteers were preparing for the competition.

 

Parents with their children were warming up for either 3km or 6km run. The red costumes and the hat they were wearing brightened up the scene. Even the dogs brought by the families worn their own Christmas clothes. The wind was cold, but it couldn’t bring away their joy and expectations.

 

Tom started the opening words, and the band beside him played beautiful Christmas songs of praise. Family participants run forward with their fastest speed from the starting line when someone said GO, soon disappearing around the corner.

 

If the runner appeared at the starting line again, this means they finished their running. SCIErs with their costumes on them prepared medals and bottled waters for our winners, with the word of wish and encouragement. They gasped for the air, enjoying this moment of victory belonged to themselves. Even some families with babies were more slowly than others, everyone made it to the last eventually.

 

We then had our prize ceremony. For the winner family, they had their youngest child to receive their special gifts. For us, the pleasant smile on children’s face satisfied all of the volunteers. Four hours and 342 runners, 65 volunteers and a Santa Run event, we came to the end.

 

But… as if the famous song was still playing in the air, the real Christmas hasn’t really come yet… What does it sound like...? Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…
