For the 4th year in a row, people in cities all over the country (13 as of 2013 and Sydney, Australia) have been hitting the streets in their skivvies to raise money the children's cancer charity, The Children's Tumor Foundation.
The fact that I have to run for 1.5 miles in New York City on February 9th in my underwear hasn't sunk in yet & I've chosen to focus on training (for speed, the less time I spend in my undies in the cold the better) and raising money for CTF.
My personal fundraising goal is $ 250 (which is suspiciously the same amount as the open bar...) and you can help me in 3 ways:
1. Leave a comment of encouragement below.
2. Contribute $ 2.00 to be added to my list of Undie All Stars.
3. Contribute $ 5.00 and I'll send you a "run day" photo (g-rated) thank you card.
Whether it be $5 or $50, every last donation to the Children's Tumor Foundation is appreciated, tax-deductible and goes a long way. Save a life like Nicole's instead...
Nicole Riley, like many seven-year-olds her age, loves her dolls and her Mickey Mouse goes everywhere... including countless doctor appointments and every MRI she must undergo.
Nicole was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis (NF) at one year old and lives with a plexiform tumor in her abdomen which causes both internal issues as well as the loss of her ability to walk.
The Children's Tumor Foundation is the world's largest non-government organization dedicated to ending Neurofibromatosis (NF) through research. NF is a genetic disorder, usually manifesting during adolescence, that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, causing blindness, deafness, learning disabilities and severe chronic pain. Currently, there is no cure for NF and there are frighteningly few treatment options.
Would you consider running through the streets in winter wearing barely more than your birthday suit?
