Undie Run supports NF research! Here's how you can help

Yeah, some people stripped down to their undies and ran the city streets Feb. 9! Cupid’s Charities' Cupid’s Undie Run in Indianapolis was a dash to raise funds for neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic tumor disorder that affects one in every 3,000 births (think Elephant Man). Forty cities and 14,000 undie runners came together to support those affected by NF.

Their goal was to raise $57,500 but fell short at around $36,000. If you'd like to donate, go to

According to the Cupid’s Charities website, “We run in our undies because those affected by NF can’t cover up their tumors. They can’t put on clothes to feel more comfortable, so why should we? Since 2010, we have brought together over 89,000 undie runners to build a community of supporters and raised over $16.9 million since the inception of Cupid’s Undie Run, with 100 percent of net proceeds funding NF research, through our partner the Children’s Tumor Foundation.”
