A party and a run all blended into one!
Cupid’s Undie Run is the country’s premier fundraiser that sheds light on neurofibromatosis (NF) while allowing you to run a “brief-ish” mile in your underwear–without getting in trouble, of course.
We’re sure you have more questions, so keep scrolling so we can catch you up!
What is Cupid's Undie Run?
Cupid’s Charity was started in 2010, by three noble men, Brendan Hanrahan, Chad Leathers, and Bobby Gill, who dropped their pants and ran through DC to bring awareness to neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body.
Since it’s debut in 2010, the undie run has raised over $18.9MIL, with 100% of net proceeds funding research through their partner the Children’s Tumor Foundation, the world’s leader in NF research.
Why run in undies?
You run in your undies in solidarity with those affected with NF because they can’t cover up their tumors and be comfortable, so why should we?
Don’t feel comfortable running in your knickers? Don’t worry costumes are also encouraged. The more creative the better!
Their number one mission is to #EndNF by accelerating the discovery of a cure and inspiring communities to do good year-round with boundary-pushing experiences.
There is currently no cure for Neurofibromatosis, and it, unfortunately, affects 1 in 3,000, children born.
Cupid's Charity Three Core Values:
1. Always lead with love.
2. Never stop innovating.
3. Attitude is everything.
