ATLANTA -

It is one of those quirky Atlanta traditions. The Atlanta Santa Speedo Run stepped off Saturday despite the cold drizzle.

Participants raised a minimum of $250 for the honor to don a Speedo or similar attire with a holiday twist and run through the streets of Midtown Atlanta.

The annual event raised money for charity. This year's event was held to support Kate's Club, an organization that empowers children and teens facing life after the death of a parent or sibling.

The participants raised over $100,000 for the organization.
