Picture this…thousands of people running around in their underwear in the middle of winter. And now picture this…thousands of children afflicted by a disease called Neurofibromatosis. It is a genetic disease that afflicts 1 out of 3,000 children and causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body causing blindness, deafness, learning disabilities and severe chronic pain. To help combat this disease, the Children’s Tumor Foundation raises money to fund research in order to work towards finding a cure.
Enter the Cupid’s Undie Run. This is an event held on February 15th in which thousands of people strip down to their undies and run around a yet to be announced course somewhere in Boston in order to raise money and awareness. Pretty awesome if you ask me. Who wouldn’t want to run around in their undies in the middle of winter?
Now given my bum hip, I will not be running…argh. But I will be there volunteering and being the best cheerleader I can be. I sooooo wish I could run and jump around in my underwear but the hip just won’t be ready for that. SO, in an effort to keep the theme (and the fun) rolling, I will be volunteering in only my underwear, but there’s a catch…
I will only volunteer in my underwear if I get at least 10 donations. Thats it, 10!!! I am that confident that 10 of you who read this will donate since I really, really want to be in my underwear at the event in order to feel like I am giving it my all. But I won’t do it unless I get those 10 donations. Come on everyone, I really want to be in my underwear at this event but I have to set some sort of goal in order to allow myself to do it! In addition, if I get more than 10, I will write on my stomach the name of every person who donates in order to honor their support for such a great cause. A picture will be taken and it will be posted on my blog so you will have proof of it!
Any amount helps as 100% of the money raised goes to the Foundation. So please donate to the run through this link:
Remember: 10 people and I will be in my underwear for the entire event, more than 10 people and your name will be on my stomach…that’s it. Come on guys!
