BACK BAY — More than $75,000 was raised in the 18th annual Santa Speedo Run on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018. Money raised from the event for the Play Ball! Foundation. 

The SSRun began in Boston in 2000 with give guys just looking to spread some holiday spirit by running through Back Bay in only Santa hats and Speedos. Since then it has grown to include 700 men and women each year and has become an annual holiday tradition that has hosted thousands of participants who have helped to raise nearly $2 million for local children in need.
