Hit the Streets of Detroit in Your Undies

Next week, you have a chance to drop your pants and run through the streets of Detroit! Cupid's Undie Run will once again be returning to Downtown Detroit, on Saturday, February 9th. The run was started in Washington DC in 2010. The goal of this run was to raise money for Neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic tumor disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 births. The idea is, participants
run in their undies because the kids can't cover their tumors, so why should we be able to cover up. Plus, running in your underwear is super fun and definitely will draw more attention than a regular 5K.

Cupid's Undie Run is a short run, with the entire length only about a mile. The run kicks off at The Fillmore  at 2 p.m. and ends at 2:15 p.m., so like we said, it's super short. You don't have to train for weeks, and you don't even have to run. This isn't your typical race. You can walk, jog, trot, or run around like an idiot if you want. It's all for a good cause. Since the run is only 15 minutes long, there has to be more of a reason for you to head downtown in your skivvies. So, inside The Fillmore there is a party before and after the run. The party starts at noon and then picks back up after the race is over.

Cupid's Undie Run is still looking for participants. To sign up to run, or to donate money to the cause, click here.
