Austin Landing hosted Cupid’s Undie Run on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019. This race happens in 40 different cities around the world and is a “brief” fun run that takes place in the middle of a big party to support finding a cure to neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 children born.

Cupid’s Undie Run: Strip down to your skivvies for a good cause

In honor of this month of love, organizers of Cupid’s Undie Run are asking you to (nearly) bare it all for a good cause. 

>> JUST ANNOUNCED: Bellwether Music Fest expands to 3 days and will star Nathaniel Rateliff

Once again, Dayton will be participating in Cupid’s Undie Run, an underwear party (of sorts) put on each year by Cupid’s Charity in around 40 American cities to raise awareness and find a cure for neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that affects one in every 3,000 children born. The event will raise money to find the cure to the genetic disorder. 

This year, the event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 15, at Lock 27 Brewing Company in Dayton. 

Despite the name of the event, don’t be fooled. Little to no running will actually be involved. Attendees of Cupid’s Undie Run will only run (or walk) for a mile at their own pace. On that same note, if stripping down to your skivvies in front of strangers seems out of the question, event organizers ask that you wear an outrageous costume of some variety, instead.

The party will begin with drinks and mingling, and end with an “epic dance party.” 

Attendees will pay $40 to participate, with the option of raising donations to receive extra goodies like a race T-shirt. You can register for the undie event by visiting my.cupids.org/register. Want to learn more about how to raise money for Cupid’s Charity? Visit cupids.org/rewards.
