DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s not everyday hundreds of runners take to the streets in their birthday suits or something pretty close to it.
Scantly clad men and women hit the street for a good cause on Saturday in Detroit; Cupid’s Undie Run.
Twenty-four year-old participant Anthony McInown showed off some super power status for the run and said he’s not afraid of frostbite.
“Pretty much I’ve got on a little ‘Flash’, like the super hero underwear and shoes,” said McInown.”Flash is a runner – so if I’m going to run as fast as I can in a mile, I’m going to wear his underwear.”
Runners took to the streets to lap Ford Field and Comerica Park with proceeds from the event which tallied at least $80,000 on Saturday go to help children fighting brain tumors.
The event began in Washington, D. C. in 2010 and now can be found in cities around the country. Funds are raised for the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
