Cupid’s Undie Run

In 2010, a group of do-gooders, led by co-founders Brendan Hanrahan, Chad Leathers and Bobby Gill, dropped their pants and ran through the D.C. cold to raise money for research to help end neurofibromatosis (NF), a rare genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. They ran in their undies because those affected with NF can’t cover up their tumors, so they decided to strip down in solidarity.Since 2010, Cupid’s Charity was created and became a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit with a mission to end NF by funding much needed research. We have raised over $16,900,000 to date, with 100% of net proceeds funding research through our partner the Children’s Tumor Foundation, the world’s leader in NF research. Saturday, 12 – 4 pm; 419 Glenwood Ave, Raleigh, NC
