Despite frigid temperatures, hundreds of runners once again stripped down for charity in the fifth annual Cupid's Undie Run on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C., on Feb. 15. The event, which started in the District in 2010 and takes place around Valentine's Day, has expanded to more than 30 cities across the country and around the world to benefit the Children's Tumor Foundation in its fight against neurofibromatosis, a rough cancer that affects the nervous system of small children. The aim of the event is to raise close to $3 million for the cause. Founders and organizers of Cupid’s Undie Run, Bobby Gill and Brendan Hanrahan, were on hand to lead the festivities and award prizes for the best undressed. Temperatures hovered around 37 degrees outside, but participants were able to warm up before and after the race at participating watering holes along Pennsylvania Avenue, NE, including the Pour House, Hawk 'N' Dove and Capitol Lounge. The approximately one-mile course on Capitol Hill took runners past the Supreme Court and U.S. Capitol with many stopping to pose for photos along the way.
