The 2014 Deafblind Scotland Santa Dash took place at Mugdock Country Park, Milngavie on Sunday 14th December. Close to 250 santas enjoyed the 5km and 1km fun runs despite wet and windy weather conditions. The age of participants ranged from 1 to 78, with runners of all abilities taking part. The event would not have been possible without the wonderful help of close to 30 volunteers and the attentive staff at Mugdock Country Park. A huge thanks to Santander for providing 22 volunteers who acted as marshals and attendants on the day. Deafblind Scotland is still calculating the funds raised through the event with sponsorship still to be handed in. The top individual fundraiser will win a family photography session with Ken Reid Photography and afternoon teas for two at Caulders Garden Centre.
A huge thanks to the following businesses which have supported the event: Sports Direct Fitness in Milngavie, Aquaid, Eden Spring, Caulders Garden Centre, Ken Reid Photography and Grossman Toys.

For 25 years Deafblind Scotland has been serving the Deafblind community, sustaining deafblind people's personal and professional support networks and influencing statutory services and policy. The work we do raises awareness of deafblindness, continually highlights the everyday challenges faced by deafblind people and makes a real difference to and for our citizens and their communities across Scotland.
To mark this landmark celebration, we've launched our Sterling Silver Appeal asking 1,000 individuals for a £25 donation. Our target of £25,000 would go some way to support our specialist services and reach out to many more individuals living with deafblindness.
