New Yorkers are not shy about getting their gear off for a good cause. There’s the famous Improv Everywhere ‘No Pants Subway Ride’ where the point of it all is to look cool and disintered while you ride the subway in your undies. This happens in NYC every Janaury. Another ritual strip down is the ‘Cupid’s Undies Run’ due to be held Feb 7, which is a charity event.
The idea is to raise funds for the Children’s Tumor Foundation by getting a group of friends together to be a team and pledge tr raise a specific amount of money for the cause. Then you go do it, a mile run that is, in what is freezing weather by February. And New Yorkers all seem to do it in very brightly colored undies which look terrific. But sensibly they also wear warm winter footwear to keep freezing toes warm.
