Cupid’s Undie Run
The Tap, Downtown Indy
The popular Cupid’s Undie Run is back this Saturday, Feb. 9, in downtown Indianapolis! Cupid’s Undie Run is a “brief” fun run that takes place in the middle of a BIG party. That’s right: a party and fun run all while wearing your undies (or a fun costume– just in case baring it all isn’t really your style)! The run also benefits Cupid’s Charity, which seeks to find a cure for neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic tumor disorder that affects one in every 3,000 births. Check-in starts at noon at The Tap (located at 306 N Delaware St), the run kicks off at 2 p.m. and the party starts immediately after!
