Hot Undies, Cold Run

Cupid’s arrow reached the hearts of children in need, as over 600 Washingtonians stripped down for Cupid’s Undie Run 2011. This year’s race raised over $50,000 for The Children’s Tumor Foundation – the world’s largest non-government organization dedicated to ending Neurofibromatosis (NF). In the spirit of Valentine’s day and amidst the chilly weather, runners put on their flashiest, funniest, sexiest and most stylish undies and took off for a 1.1 mile run from Pennsylvania Ave. to the historic U.S. Capitol Building and back. The post-race party was held at the Pour House Restaurant & Bar, where runners enjoyed giveaways, prizes for outstanding costumes and top fundraisers, and some adult beverages and munchies.
