Santas in Speedos jingle their bells for charity

Add this share

Scores of Santas clad in their Speedos showed off their holiday best (and more) on Saturday as the 7th Annual Atlanta Santa Speedo Run strutted its stuff through Virginia-Highland. 

The gay-popular parade of abs and flesh raised about $48,000 for Blaze Sports, which works with people with physical disabilities through adaptive sports. The annual charity event shifted from Hudson Grille on Peachtree Street, its home for the last four years, to Manuel's Tavern where it stated in 2009.

Check out our favorite Santa Speedo packages, photos from 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010, as well as our picks for the hunkiest of hunks from the event in 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010.
