The Alternative Press highlighted Cleveland's 2013 Cupid's Undie Run in their "Big Story" feature.
"In the Human Factor, we profile survivors who have overcome the odds. Confronting a life obstacle -- injury, illness or other hardship -- they tapped their inner strength and found resilience they didn't know they possessed. When Drew Leathers was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, or NF, his family knew at the time there wasn't much hope. His brother and others came up with the Cupid's Undie Race to raise funds for research."
"Police were shutting down intersections. Tensions were high as I begged an officer to let me down a back alley to a secret parking lot I know about – this is Capitol Hill, but it’s also my home. I found my way to the church’s back lot, threw open my trunk, grabbed a pair of bodies and lenses and made sure I had a few memory cards."
"This Saturday, 8,000 runners around the world will raise money for The Children's Tumor Foundation. And they'll be in their underwear.
Chad Leather's brother was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disorder that allows tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, in 2009. A few months later, in February 2010..."
The Cupid's crew stopped by the Today Show to share the undie love. Kathie Lee and Hoda really loved their #ImWithCupid undies!
"There were many frightening sights at the Cupid Undie Run in Washington D.C. on Saturday, but I never expected to see two of the Nationals’ Racing Presidents. Teddy Roosevelt, who never wins at Nationals Park, most likely fared no better here — although he is ahead of George Washington in the video.
Teddy and George earn praise for participating in the race, which benefits the Children’s Tumor Foundation. But they lose points for not running in their underwear. Poor form. You know Lincoln would have stripped to his longjohns."
"Mankinis. Tuxedo-printed briefs. Men in red lingerie. A woman dressed only in flesh-colored underwear and two black “censored” signs.
As the founders and organizers of Cupid’s Undie Run, Bobby Gill, 28, and Brendan Hanrahan, 27, have seen it all — and they’re expecting the same creativity Saturday, as 800 runners strip down for a 1.5-mile jaunt on Capitol Hill. 'Anything goes,' Hanrahan says, 'except thongs.' 'And pasties,' Gill adds quickly. 'We had to make that rule when a group of older women contacted us about wearing them. Definitely no pasties.'"
USA Today compiled this fun video clip of the inaugural Nashville running of the Cupid's Undie Run.
"Running in your underwear, thanks to tomorrow's Cupid's Undie Run. Actually a series of runs--events are held in 17 U.S. cities plus Sydney, Australia--Cupid's Undie Run raises awareness of neurofibromatosis and benefits the Children’s Tumor Foundation. I will do my part by publishing the following photo of women running in their underthings..."
