Cupid's Undie Run
This Valentine’s Day weekend, throw on your bedroom-best and help raise money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation at Cupid’s Undie Run! Located less than a mile from the run, Broughton’s Majestic Hotel is the perfect place to stay for February 13th.
About the Cause
Each February, thousands of underwear-clad runners across the United States take to the streets for Cupid’s Undie Run: a mile(ish) long run to help raise money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF) in an effort to end neurofibromatosis (NF). NF is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow all over the nervous system and can cause blindness, deafness, learning disabilities, and severe chronic pain. There is currently no cure for this debilitating disease that affects roughly 1 in every 3,000 births in the U.S. alone, but Cupid’s Undie Run has raised almost $8 million over the years for CTF: the world’s largest non-government organization dedicated to ending NF through research. Why are we running in our undies? Because people with NF can’t cover up their tumors. They can’t put clothes on to be more comfortable, so why should we?
About the Run
Cupid’s Undie Run will take place on Saturday, February 13th at 2pm, rain or shine. It is not competitive, it is not timed, it is not long, but it IS fun! Doors open to the public at noon, so come down early to dance around in your undies at the pre run party. After the race, stick around for the post run party with drinks and a DJ: open bar closes at 3:30pm and the run officially ends at 4pm. A $45 registration fee is applicable from now until February 5th (fee raises to $55/runner from Feb. 6-13). Alcohol will be served at the event, so runners must be 21 years and older with a valid ID in order to participate.
