The Boston Santa Speedo Run

As a former Bostonian, I can only say that I wish the city started on tradition when I lived there: The Santa Speedo Run. Now THAT'S a holiday event that would bring cheer and make us cheer! :)
  This event began in 2000 when a few Bostonians were trying to revel in the holiday spirit by taking part in a run through the Back Bay, wearing only Santa hats and their speedos (or other types of suits). Since that day, the SSRun has become an annual holiday tradition that attracts almost 700 runners each year, and has raised more than $1.4 million for local children in need. This year’s event  benefits the Play Ball Foundation.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
