READ MORE | The hunks of Atlanta Santa Speedo Run
Speedo-clad Santas stripped down and showed off their holiday best on Saturday as part of the 5th Annual Atlanta Santa Speedo Run. The parade of abs and flesh raised nearly $100,000 for charity.
Rain and frigid temperatures may have shrank their Speedo packages, but not their spirits. The hunk-filled mass of gay and gay-friendly flesh kicked off from Hudson Grille on Peachtree Street for its 1.5-mile romp through Midtown with participants cheering along the way. A heavy dose of warm-up cocktails couldn't have hurt. Our advice on how to serve up some Santa in those Speedos had to help, too.
The event's website says it raised $97,800 for Kate's Club, a non-profit that provides long-term therapeutic and recreational support for grieving children. Last year, about 200 people took part and raised $90,000. The event started in 2009 with 170 people raising eyebrows and $42,000. Prior to Saturday's run, the event has raised more than $300,000 for charity.
