Landing at the tail end of February, Cupid had more arrows to shoot after Valentine's Day with Cupid's Undie Run. Held on Feb. 24, 2024, from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. at Sluggers Bar, 3540 North Clark Street, this fun run was out for a worthy cause.

Neurofibromatosis is a condition that causes tumors to form in the brain, spinal cord and nerves. While NF can't be cured, it can be treated and money is an obstacle for many people faced with it.

Cupid's Undie Run was founded in 2010 to create awareness through fundraising and a mile run by pantless participants. So far over $24,000,000 has been raised by more than 130,000 runners.

Carbonated fruit drink Illicit Elixirs supported the jog with a little DopaJoy. This lightning in a can was a perfect match to boost energy for the scantily clad contributors.

The home of the dueling pianos had the crowd singing along to classic tunes on the second floor before they gathered to kick off the run below.

Many wore red, rainbow or themed costumes to follow a designated route on a bright, sunny Saturday afternoon.
