Cupid’s Undie Run – Detroit

The Fillmore Detroit

Feb 11th, 2017

Donation Based

More info HERE

What is it? Cupid’s Undie Run is a mile(ish) run in your bedroom-best on Valentine’s weekend. All proceeds go to benefit The Children’s Tumor Foundation and neurofibromatosis research. These runs take place in cities all over the country. Why run in your underwear? They have a really good answer for that. Because people with NF can’t cover up their tumors. They can’t put clothes on to feel more comfortable, so why should we? The pictures look like it’s a blast and it’s for a great cause.

A Cat Cabaret

The Magic Bag

Feb 12th, 2017

$100 for a ticket
