Sat, Feb 15th: Cupid's Undie Run in Downtown San Jose

Admit it, you've dreamed of running around downtown San Jose in your unmentionables, haven't you?

Well it's not too late to let your dreams come true - and in a totally legal manner as well. This Saturday (February 15th) join the Cupid's Undie Run! It's a mile(ish) jaunt from Britannia Arms and down and around Plaza de César Chávez. Since we have fabulous weather (compared to everywhere else), you probably won't even feel the chill! (No guarantees, though.)

So what is the Cupid's Undie Run? Yes, it's another novelty-themed run, but for a fabulous cause. Funds raised will go to The Children's Tumor Foundation. Last year they raised $1.3 million for the cause. The run happens on the same day around the country; there's one in San Francisco, but this year they added San Jose to the mix. 

The Children's Tumor Foundation is the world's largest non-government organization dedicated to ending neurofibromatosis. From the website, a quick description is this:
There are children out there suffering from a debilitating genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis (NF). NF causes tumor to grow all over the nervous system and can cause blindness, deafness, learning disabilities and severe chronic pain. 
So, prepare your accessories to wear with your undies and register today before all the spots are taken up. This morning on Alice 97.3 (a sponsor of the run) they mentioned there was only 100 or so spots left; so you better hurry! Get your friends together and run!
