ATLANTA - Runners stripped down to next to nothing Saturday in Midtown, but it was all for a good cause. About 200 people participated in the annual Santa Speedo Race , with benefits going to CURE Childhood Cancer.
The race got its start in Boston, but it proved to be so popular that it soon spread across the country. Proceeds from the event in Atlanta go to local non-profit groups. This year, organizers expect the event to raise $80,000.
