Charity fundraising challenges and events are popular in countries like the UK, but the phenomenon has not yet become quite as big in Sweden. Former London resident Kiana Moberg is hoping to change this with the Stockholm Santa Run.

On Sunday, December 11, potentially thousands of people in Santa suits will be running and walking through Gamla Stan, Stockholm's old town, to raise money for charity. The person behind the event, Kiana Moberg, was inspired by a similar event in London.

"I got really inspired, and I saw how popular it was. I was like, 'Wow, why not in Sweden!' It doesn't really exist here."

The proceeds this year will go to the Red Cross, the Aktivis foundation for children with special needs, and to the Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation.
