The Ugly Sweater Run is open to all ages, free for children five years old and under, and adults are invited to enjoy a complimentary brew from Samuel Adams. For the second year, the Ugly Sweater Run will benefit Save the Children, a global nonprofit which gives children in the United States and around the world a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. All participants have the option to donate $5 or more during registration and create an online fundraising platform to help raise funds for Save the Children.
