Brief Encounter

Strip down and give back for Cupid's Undie Run


Here's a novel Valentine's Day idea: Strip down to your skivvies.
Sure, you say, that's SOP. This year, however, you'll do it in public.
And since you're doing it for Cupid's Undie Run, you can even say it's for a good cause.
Don't worry, this is no marathon. It's a laid-back, underwear-only run of about a mile's worth of bobbing boxers, briefs, and bras — in the freezing cold.
And it all goes toward raising money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation. Last year Cupid's Undie Run raised $1.3 million in donations, and it hopes to reach $3 million this year.
Here's how it works: Sign up either as an individual or a team, and explain to all of your neighbors, coworkers, postal employees, and bodega owners that you are taking it all off for charity. (Or maybe skip that first part.) Show up on race day with donations in hand, prepared to party.
That's because the amount of money you raise translates into swag. Earn $50, and you get a pair of red briefs. Earn $350, and you get access to a VIP open bar at the event.
The best part: You can remain pants-less the entire time. And some of us might just call that heaven.
