Cupid’s Undie Run is scheduled for February 18, benefits kids with tumors, and gives ‘junk drawer’ a whole new meaning.

We don’t mean to get your panties in a bunch, but it looks like the old “Undie Run” stunt isn’t just for college campuses anymore. The annual Cupid’s Undie Run is scheduled for February 18 in San Francisco, is not limited to just undergraduates, and raises funds for Cupid’s Charities to benefit kids with neurofibromatosis.

The brief description of this annual event is that it’s “the world’s largest organized undie run,” because these Undie Runs are now held in 47 cities worldwide around Valentine’s Day. San Francisco has been holding a Cupid’s Undie Run for the last few years, and is at least a warmer place for a February jaunt in just your drawers than some of the other host cities like Chicago, Detroit and New York.

This is a pretty short run for your short-shorts, as the Cupid’s Undie Run is only a mile long. You can jockey for position when the Undie Run gets underway at 2 p.m., but the party kicks off at Noon at Pedro’s Cantina with open bar privileges and other prizes for top fundraisers.

Runners raise funds by registering, then creating a custom page for soliciting online donations from your friends. You can register as an individual, or as a group to run with your closest intimates. While there are many nice prizes at various fundraising levels, you’ll be most interested to know that the open bar privileges come once you’ve raised $250.

All proceeds from the Cupid’s Undie Run go to the Children’s Tumor Foundation that seeks to support families of kids suffering from neurofibromatosis and funds research to cure the disease.
