stanta grou

Twas the fortnight before christmakwanzakah, when all through the Net,
Human creatures were stirring clicking their mice;
Running shoes and stocking were hung next to compression tights with care,
In hopes that Flash Dash Series’ Santa Hat Dash would soon be here;
Homeless children will be nestled in the blankets and warm clothing we gather,
While we strive towards the things in life which truly matter;
Imagine hundreds of runners in Santa Hats with warming beverages post race,
There will be no funner holiday event to be had any place!
“Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donder and Blixen!
With family and friends come dressed up like a jolly old elves,
We promise a heart warming time, in spite of yourselves!
Get registered today, without any delay,
Start gathering donations tonight, right away!
We want to hear all exclaim as you run ‘ere out of sight!
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
