Cupid’s Undie Run is coming back to Nashville for another year along with 37 other cities! We’re huge supporters of this event and the cause that it stands for, so if you won’t be in Nashville, we suggest you check it out in whatever city you’ll be in. You won’t regret it!
Keep reading to see why you should register in your city.
Cupid’s Undie Run has raised more than $18,900,000 since its launch in 2010, with 100% of proceeds going to the Children’s Tumor Foundation and their neurofibromatosis (NF) research. 100%!!!! That’s amazing.
NF is a rare genetic disorder, affecting 1 in every 3,000 births, which causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body.
“In 2010, a group of do-gooders, led by co-founders Brendan Hanrahan, Chad Leathers, and Bobby Gill, dropped their pants and ran through the D.C. cold to raise money for research to help end neurofibromatosis. They ran in their undies because those affected with NF can’t cover up their tumors, so they decided to strip down in solidarity.” (Cupid’s Undie Run)
Alright, so running around half-naked sounds like a lot of fun as it is, now what if we told you there’s a huge party too? The run itself is only about 1 mile, so the majority of your time will be having a great time while STILL supporting the Children’s Tumor Foundation’s NF research.
We know everyone isn’t 100% comfortable wearing underwear in the cold. If that’s you, you’re welcome to get a little more creative with your attire.
Once you register, you can set up your own personal fundraising page to send to your friends, family, and everyone else you know!
