Photos from the 2016 Cupid’s Undie Run in Boston
On Saturday, hundreds of people stripped down to their skivvies and ran around Fenway Park—for a good cause.
Boston’s third annual Cupid’s Undie Run brought people from all around Massachusetts together to raise awareness and money for NF (neurofibromatosis), a genetic disorder, and the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
Unlike previous years, this year, the nearly naked participants enjoyed lovely 50-degree weather as they ran a mile in and around Fenway Park.
Throughout the run, there was plenty of time for selfies, cheering, and high fives. Participants were decked out in outfits inspired by Star Wars, the presidential election, cartoon characters and, of course, Valentine’s Day.
After the run, many participants headed back into House of Blues for more dancing and drinking.
