Get your beard and red suit ready for a good cause!

Thousands of Santas will be hitting the streets of Philadelphia on Saturday for the annual "Running of the Santas" festival.

And you can be part of it. Tickets are still available!

Julie Dorenbos, wife of Philadelphia Eagles long-snapper Jon Dorenbos, and Ryan Van Laeys will be there. They're spokespeople for the event.
