Thousands are expected to flood the port city in their Santa suits on December 1 when Variety WA hosts its annual Santa Fun Run.
Last year, 1600 Santas helped raise more than $45,000, but Variety is hoping 2013 is the year it cracks the magic $100,000 mark.
Among the participants are the Stokes family from Hammond Park.
Their six-year-old daughter Mikayla has global developmental delay, meaning she has limited control over her body movements and needs to use a wheelchair.
In the past 12 months, Variety has granted Mikayla a standing frame worth $5500 and $10,000 to modify the family car to make trips easier.
‘We are super-excited and are doing our best to get right behind the fundraising campaign,’ father Brett said.
Team Mikayla S has several sponsors and a crew of supporters to help make a big difference to help Mikayla and the family give back to Variety.’
