    Cupid's Undie Run is a unique charitable event in Washington DC. Participants run a one mile lap in their Valentine's themed undies to raise money for the Children's Tumor Foundation and to raise awareness for neurofibromatosis  research. The event began in Washington DC in 2010 and is now held each year in dozens of cities around the world. If you are not brave enough to don your clothes, it is a fun event to watch and support the participants. Enjoy these pictures of the Cupid's Undie Run.
