The Hot Chocolate Run raises funds for Safe Passage, the organization addressing domestic violence in Hampshire County. This event is Safe Passage's largest fundraising event. We are so fortunate to have the support of thousands of participants and dozens of business sponsors and donors.

This year's event will be held on Sunday, December 2. Registration is limited to 5,500 people, and we anticipate that day-of registration will not be available. Please register early!

For the first time, we are offering FREE event registration to anyone who commits to raising money through their online fundraising page. Please choose one of the "Step Up for Safe Passage" registration categories to get started.

Each registered participant will receive a mug (designed by syndicated cartoonist Hilary Price) full of delicious homemade hot chocolate.

THROUGH NOVEMBER 23: $27 adult; $18 student or senior; $12 child 12 and under

A $3 per person discount is available for teams, families or groups of 4 or more people.
New this year: No service fees when you register online! Please register online if at all possible. Not only does this immediately confirm your registration, but it saves Safe Passage a great deal of time and resources! Thank you.
