2016 was Cupid’s Undie Run’s first year in Buffalo. The run is considered a BIG party, with a”Brief” run, that raises millions of dollars nationally for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. The run… err, four hour party, features a mile-ish fun run in the middle. Participants can run at their own pace, and party at their own pace, while raising money for Neurofibromatosis (NF) – a genetic disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 children born.
There are only 188 spots left for Buffalo’s Cupid’s a Undie Run! Actually, that update was five hours ago, which means that there are even fewer left at this stage of the game. The wearing of undies is encouraged, but not mandatory – costumes are also encouraged. Be fun. Be happy. And let it show.
Runners/partiers can form a team, join a team, run solo… whatever it takes to participate on Saturday, February 10. Heck, who doesn’t want to run in their undies in the middle of February in Buffalo?
This year, the party/race will be held at Thin Man Brewery, which is considered “a very convenient location – we will be running around the old Women and Children’s Hospital. WCHOB is the Hospital where our local ‘NF’ families receive most care,” according to event director Heidi Pierce. “The new Oshei Children’s Hospital just opened their doors to an NF Clinic, which means more targeted treatment and care for NF families.We strip down to our undies because those living with NF can not cover up their tumors so easily. There is no specific treatment for NF and our efforts go towards more effective treatments and one day, a cure. We party for a purpose and that is to #endnf.”
