People dressed as Santa Claus participate in the Osaka Great Santa Run event on Nov. 27, 2016, in Osaka's Chuo Ward. About 5,000 people joined the 5-kilometer walk, despite a steady rain. The annual event, started in 2009, was organized by the NPO Osaka Akaru Club to support sick children. Part of the participation fees collected will go to buying Christmas gifts for about 800 sick youngsters in Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo prefectures, with deliveries to be made in December. (Mainichi)
