United Way cancels popular Run for the Claus

United Way Cowichan has announced that they have cancelled the Run for the Claus event for 2014.

Though the event, which saw people dress up in Santa suits and do a route around Duncan, drew a crowd of hundreds, Board President Mike Murphy said it has not brought in much money, and the organization has to focus on getting bang for their buck. The goal this year is to raise $230,000.
