Amazing Race Canada winner joins Santa Claus Parade

  • Print

The Winnipeg Santa Claus Parade is adding some "amazing" to its event this year.

Organizers announced that Tim Hague Sr., fresh off his win in the inaugural season of CTV’s The Amazing Race Canada, will be the honorary Grand Marshall of the parade next month.

The 2013 parade, the 104th edition of the event, is scheduled for Nov. 16 at 5 p.m.

Hague, a registered nurse, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease three years ago. His story was featured prominently during the nationally televised journey around Canada. Showing a person can continue to live life after diagnosis, he has been deeply involved in the promotion of Parkinson’s issues and building awareness around young onset Parkinson’s disease.

The parade will also introduce a new safety program, No Feet on the Street, as a part of this year’s event. Over 700 volunteers have been recruited for the parade; approximately 200 of them will help administer the new safety initiative.

The local holiday parade is largest outdoor not-for-profit community event in Winnipeg. Organizers say roughly 100 floats and groups have registered for the festivities.
