Santas and Reindeer, Doers and Donors

Thank you to the slightly more than 1,800 “Santas” and “Reindeer” that endured wind, rain and hail on Sunday at the 4th Annual TiVo “Santa Run Silicon Valley” to benefit Christmas in the Park, Downtown Ice and Reading Partners. I’m always amazed and inspired by the spirit of community we are collectively building in Silicon Valley, especially the commitment of all the Santa Run participants, including the 150 children in the SunPower “Kids Reindeer Run,” which was new this year. Together, in just four years, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation has been able to donate nearly $400,000 to support these time-honored holiday traditions that attract 500,000 people to downtown San Jose. Some communities are filled with talkers and takers. Silicon Valley is populated with doers and donors.
