The Santa Speedo run in Gulfport today was fun. They raised over 30 grand for children living with HIV.

@ossobuco,
The weather was perfect yesterday. I remember the event last year not nearly as many runners. I think they raised about ten thousand last year, and thirty this year. We didn’t stay long; they ended the run at O’Malley’s, bar, restaurant and having Antonio with us we just congratulated the runners and went home.

The Santa Speedo run made the paper. I remember the one last year but I did realize it was their first. Second year and they raised 30 grand! not bad, I think I'll get involved in this event for next year as well.

@jcboy,
This will be my third year and I’m starting early with getting sponsors for the next ride. So far I have four lined up to sponsor me.

I’m hitting up all the restaurants downtown. My graphic artist friend made up a little bio with photos from last years ride and later today I will be distributing them downtown.

Only 12 days to go and I take off on the ninth annual Smart Ride. I just checked the figures and so far the riders have raised over 600 thousand dollars! Most of mine will come in the last week before the ride.
