The 17th annual Santa speedo sprint sent runners dressed in Santa outfits, down Lark Street Saturday afternoon.

Some braving the bitter cold, wearing only a bathing suit.

Businesses also held its 6th annual chili and chowder stroll.

The Damien Center says they reached their goal to raise $5,000.

All the money raised benefits the Damien Center and the HIV aids program at Albany Medical Center.
