Making News

After his brother was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, Chad Leathers and his two friends Brendan Hanrahan and Bobby Gill decided to help. Two years ago, the trio founded Cupid’s Undie Run, a fundraiser for the Children’s Tumor Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working to end the disease.

On February 9, 2013, more than 8,000 people will hit the streets of 17 cities in the United States for a 1.5-mile run in, you guessed it, their underwear. Individuals and teams will work to fulfill the goal of raising more than $1 million for the foundation.

According to the CTF website (www.ctf.org), neurofibromatosis encompasses a set of distinct genetic disorders that cause tumors to grow along various types of nerves.
