Just days after the massive Eagles Victory Parade, locals stripped down to their skivvies for another wild romp through the streets of Philly: the eighth annual Cupid’s Undie Run.
The event, held in cities across the nation, raises money to fund research for neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that affects 1 in 3,000 children born in the United States. The Philly version took place at World Cafe Live and drew hundreds of good-spirited folks who braved the rain for the fun run, which was bookended by a party featuring an open bar, dancing, body painting and more.
Though it’s called an “undie run,” participants aren’t required to show up in nothing but their drawers. Some donned costumes while others wore pajamas or any other kind of getup they felt comfortable in—like a garbage can or a blow-up velociraptor doll. The goal is simply to have fun and raise money for a good cause. And we certainly did. Philadelphia raised more than $175,000, making us among the top-earning participating cities. (We even trounced New York City by about $77,000.) To learn more about next year’s run check out cupids.org. But for now, check out photos from this weekend’s event in Philly below.
