Cupid calls for courage

On February 15, be a part of Cupid’s Undie Run, a “brief,” mile(ish) fun run that takes place in the middle of a BIG party — all to find a cure for neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic tumor disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 births. Participants run in their undies because those affected with NF can’t cover up their tumors to feel more comfortable, so why should runners? Start a team of your friends, join a team, run solo or just come out, have a blast and raise some money for NF research. Cupid’s Undie Run starts at Trees, 2709 Elm St., at noon. The party continues until 4 p.m. For more information, or to purchase $40 tickets, visit
