What do you get when 10,000 wonderful people dress up as Santa Claus and march through the streets of a beautiful Greek city?
The 6th Hania Santa Run took place the day after Christmas in the western Cretan town.
Marchers donned their gay apparel and took to the streets, each donating money to a fund for children with special needs.
The plan was first conceived by a group of friends who wanted to do something for children around the holidays.
It’s now one of the largest philanthropic initiatives in all of Greece.
