NEWPORT CITY - Momentum is gaining for organizers of the first annual Newport Santa Run with 60 people signed up. With the sponsorship of Northpoint Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and support of NEKCA and Phil White of Kingdom Games, Saturday’s fundraising run will raise funds for Toys for Kids. “We’ve already signed up 60 people and have ordered more Santa suits,” said White. “There’s 20 suits left for kids, and 20 for adults. Same-day registration is permissible until we’ve run out of suits.”NEKCA’s Parent Child Center has financial forms parents can complete, and write down a few items each child under the age of 19 in the family would like for Christmas. All donations are tax deductible and the presents stay in Orleans County.Please see The Newport Daily Express Wednesday for the complete story.
