It’s That Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

19 Nov

This year’s race is on Saturday, December 8, from 11:00am – 4:00pm!

The time has come to begin raising money and preparing for the 2012 Santa Speedo Sprint! This year the ASAP Daisies have joined ASAP, Albany All Stars Roller Derby Team and several other great groups in sponsoring this event. All proceeds benefit the Albany Damien Center and the HIV/AIDS Program at Albany Medical Center.


It’s the 7th year of stripping down to our skivvies to sprint (or walk) the .8 K race down Lark St. So get your Speedos and Santa hats ready and start collecting sponsors today. Visit the Santa Speedo Sprint website for more information and download your pledge sheet: here. It is worth it if only for the askance looks you’ll elicit from your co-workers.

If you want to start as a spectator please come and donate and bear witness to some of the bravest philanthropists in Albany in their 7th year strong! If you can’t make it in person, you can donate through the Sprint’s Firstgiving page.

We hope to see you there!
