Tis the season to jingle your bells and don your gay apparel!

We are back in-person this year, stripped down to our speedos and supporting a great cause. It’s our 10th Anniversary, so join us in making this the biggest and best Santa Speedo Run ever! Benefiting Center on Halsted.

Here are a few ways to really make a difference this year:


PERSONALIZE!  Our new system allows you to easily build your personal page. Upload photos, set a fundraising goal, and track your fundraising progress! Many of you have participated in Santa Speedo with your friends for years, and we would really appreciate if you could help increase our team/group participation. Remember to register your team when you register.

ASK!  Challenge your friends, family and colleagues to SUPPORT your efforts. All funds support Center on Halsted, advancing the health and wellbeing of Chicago’s LGBTQ community.

Shopping for a Speedo – If you don’t already have a speedo and holiday gear to wear, we recommend you stop in at the Men’s Room on Halsted Street where you’ll receive a 25% discount on apparel when you mention ‘Santa Speedo Run’.
