WHAT: Santa Skivvies Run
WHEN: Sunday, December 16, 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Begins and ends at Lookout, 3600 16th Street, San Francisco
One of San Francisco’s most festive holiday events will brighten up the Castro neighborhood on Sunday, December 16. Men and women from all walks of life will don boxers, briefs, and bras to raise money for San Francisco AIDS Foundation in the fourth annual Santa Skivvies Run. The event supports the foundation’s free, local HIV prevention and care services that benefit thousands of clients annually, especially in hard-hit neighborhoods like the Castro.
The run begins and ends at Lookout, the official host of Santa Skivvies Run. The route winds its way through the Castro with drag queens leading the way on Segway scooters. New this year, participants can enjoy the Santa Skivvies Village outside Lookout on Noe Street between Market and Beaver Streets.
Fundraising is optional, but participants are encouraged to create a fundraising goal. Foundation staff members provide online tools and exciting incentives to help each participant meet and exceed their goal. Last year runners raised more than $30,000.
Registration is $35, and all runners receive a Santa hat as a registration gift. Participants can register the day of the event, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Lookout.

About San Francisco AIDS Foundation
No city experienced epidemic levels of HIV faster than San Francisco. At San Francisco AIDS Foundation, we work to end the epidemic where it first took hold, and eventually everywhere. Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco. Through education, advocacy, and direct services for prevention and care, we are confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to the disease. We refuse to accept that HIV transmission is inevitable. For more information, visit www.sfaf.org.
