Santa Speedo Run

Each year since 2011, hundreds of participants have spent a December day running through the heart of East Lakeview in Chicago, clad in nothing more than Santa hats, speedos and other holiday attire.

Why?

Because it’s great fun and raises funds for a great cause, Center on Halsted.

The Center is the Midwest's most comprehensive community center dedicated to advancing community and securing the health and well-being of LGBTQ people across Chicagoland.

Your run makes a huge difference.
