Hundreds of brave men and women stripped down to almost nothing and hit the freezing streets of Boston on Saturday for the 14th annual Santa Speedo Run, a charity “race” benefiting the Play Ball Foundation. Despite temperatures in the teens and falling snow, some 700 runners lined up along Boylston Street shortly before 1pm and hoofed it down the street and up Newberry wearing little more than holiday cheer.

This year’s run has garnered nearly $200,000 in donations so far, which will benefit Play Ball’s work teaching Boston middle-schoolers about teamwork, communication, and discipline through sports.
