Support Opportunity Village’s 19th Annual Las Vegas Great Santa Run with the Las Vegas Aviators®
To celebrate July’s early-bird registration pricing for the 19th Annual Las Vegas Great Santa Run, Opportunity Village has partnered with the Las Vegas Aviators® and Las Vegas Ballpark® for a little fun in the sun this month.
As one of the primary fundraisers for Opportunity Village, participation in the Las Vegas Great Santa Run 5k run or 1-mile Kris Kringle Jingle walk directly supports people with disabilities in Southern Nevada. And when baseball fans purchase tickets to see the Las Vegas Aviators take on the Sugar Land Space Cowboys on July 29 at the Las Vegas Ballpark, $5 from each ticket purchased via this link goes to Opportunity Village.
“We are so thankful for the support of the Las Vegas Aviators. It’s community partnerships like the one we have with the Aviators that have helped Opportunity Village serve adults with disabilities in the Las Vegas community since 1954,” said Bob Brown, President and CEO of Opportunity Village.
Game attendees can also support Opportunity Village on July 29 by visiting the nonprofit’s table at the Las Vegas Ballpark for more information on offerings, the Las Vegas Great Santa Run, and upcoming events and volunteer opportunities. If at least 100 game tickets are sold via the Opportunity Village link, the nonprofit will also throw out the game’s first pitch.
