Race Charity: The 2020 Santa Hustle® Smokies is proud to be partnering with House of Hope is a non-profit organization founded to provide food and shelter for orphaned children in Montrouis, Haiti. But in Haiti, "orphans" are a symptom of a poverty-stricken country, not a lack of love. That's why House of Hope is committed to furthering education, community development and women's empowerment to empower and equip families. House of Hope focuses on orphan care (providing food, shelter, and education) to children; sustainable farming; women's empowerment through micro-loan programs and educational workshops; community development through a primary school, College Mixte Le Refuge School; and a boy's soccer program. It is the hope of House of Hope to disrupt poverty through enriching the community we serve.

Toys For Tots: Santa Hustle® is a Toys for Tots official drop off spot: Please bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Santa Hustle for Toys for Tots!

Refunds: Since Santa Claus has many upfront costs, we have a strict and uniform policy of no refunds or exchanges, no person-to-person transfer, or no deferrals to a future year. We do understand that plans change, injuries happen, and various holiday festivities and situations arise, but, we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of a subjective line of who should receive a refund and who doesn’t. All purchases and sales are 100% final, no exceptions. Refunds will not be issued based on weather conditions. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

However, if the event is "cancelled" due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus, every individual will have the option to choose one of four choices:

  1. Donate their 2020 registration to the race charity
  2. Transfer their 2020 registration to virtual
  3. Defer their 2020 registraiton to 2021
  4. Defer their 2021 registration to 2022
