For most people, snow flurries and temperatures in the 20s means bundling up tight before heading out.
But for some folks on Saturday, it meant stripping down to their underwear and running a mile through the streets of downtown Detroit as part of the annual Cupid’s Undie Run. Detroit was one of 40 cities that partook in the event to benefit the Children’s Tumor Foundation, which is working on a cure for neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder that causes tumor growth on nerves.
The run began at 1 p.m. The route was a little less than a mile, starting and ending at Saint Andrew's Hall on East Congress Street.
As of Saturday afternoon, the Detroit run had raised $58,876, surpassing the $43,415 goal.
