CUPID'S UNDIE RUN | PHILADELPHIA
Welcome to the Philadelphia Cupid's Undie Run! This ~1 mile run in your bedroom-best on Valentine's weekend will start at the Urban Saloon and take us past the Philadelphia Art Museum. Yes it will be cold but "No" we're not crazy, we're just crazy serious about raising money for The Children's Tumor Foundation.
Festivities start at noon on Saturday, February 9th 2013*, then we strip down for the Undie Run at 2pm, have our fun and come back for post-race festivities and awards.
MORE NEW CITIES FOR 2013! In addition to the current lineup of DC, NYC, Atlanta, Seattle, Denver and Cincinnati, this year we'll also be undierunning in LA, San Fran, Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Orlando, Minneapolis, PHILLY, Cleveland*, St. Louis* and Detroit. Get ready! It's gonna sell out fast.
You can fundraise as an individual or join a team, and the prizes are better than ever this year! Custom undies, VIP Open Bar, embroidered bathrobes, engraved iPod Nanos, romantic getaways... tons of cool stuff for doing your good deed and fundraising for such a great cause. With facebook and twitter, fundraising is easier than ever!
Help us make this amazing day worthwhile! Your effort means a lot and February is just around the corner. Get ready to run for the kids... but let's just hope they aren't watching!
*Cleveland and St. Louis runs will take place on Feb 16th
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
The Children's Tumor Foundation is the world's largest non-government organization dedicated to ending Neurofibromatosis (NF) through research. NF is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, causing blindness, deafness, learning disabilities and severe chronic pain. Currently, there is no cure for NF and there are frighteningly few treatment options. The Children's Tumor Foundation is a Charity Navigator 4-Star charity that prides itself on efficiency, spending 82.4% of its revenue on program expenses and less than 8% on administrative costs.
NF affects roughly 1:3,000 births in the U.S. and is in desperate need of new discovery, which is why 100% of funds raised through Cupid's Undie Run go directly to the Children's Tumor Foundation.
The Foundation's mission is to advance peer-reviewed research to develop treatments and cures for NF; support persons with NF and their families by making thorough and accurate information readily available; to assist in developing clinical centers and best practices to improve access to quality healthcare for those who live with NF; and expand public awareness of NF to improve diagnoses, increase understanding of the challenges that NF presents, and encourage support for NF research.
