I started a team called "Naked Cowgirl Fox" and found 6 daring people to join me in New York City for what turned out to be not only such a well planned event raising a lot of money, but the most fun I've had doing a charity event!Last year my youngest son was graduating USAF Basic Training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas the weekend of the Cupid's Undies Run so I did not attend. This was such an emotional few days and I was so proud of him! I told my teammates that I would do it this year and this time I had 16 people join my team!
On Saturday, February 13th, the day of the event this year was so cold that officials deemed the freeze and wind chill "life-threatening"! The event co-directors Stephanie Mercurio and Amy Wheeler cut the one-mile race down to a half mile to prevent any of the runners from possibly getting frostbite. That didn't stop the majority of participants from stripping down to their best Valentine undies and getting out there to do what they came to do! Together we raised over $150,000.00 for the Children's Tumor Foundation...wooohooo!
