Ugly Sweater Charity Run

Parallel to the highly successful initiative in Budapest, the Ugly Sweater  Run is organised in Debrecen for the third time on the 9th of  December, where charity goes hand in hand with the cheerful atmosphere and the joy of movement.

All participants have to do is put on their cutest, ugliest or funniest Christmas sweater, hat, scarf and bring a gift bag with them to donate.
