Photo Gallery: The 2015 Cupid’s Undie Run

Today we’re excited to present another guest post, this time from talented Reston photographer Jim Boswell. He took some fantastic and hilarious pictures of this year’s Cupid’s Undie Run. If you enjoyed last week’s photo gallery of the Virginia Polar Dip, you’re going to love this group of courageous and crazy runners facing the cold for charity.


The following is a guest post by Jim Boswell of Jim Boswell Photography.

Pictures taken at the 2015 Cupid Undie Run in Washington, D.C. to raise funds for the Children’s Tumor Foundation to support the fight against neurofibromatosis (NF).

Residents of the DMV area braved frigid temperatures for a good cause and good times. Residents from Reston joined other brave runners from Maryland, Virginia, and the District to strip down to their undies and brave the cold to raise funds against neurofibromatosis. The Washington, D.C. run was held on February 15th in the Capitol Hill area, at Hawk n’ Dove, Stanton & Greene, and Capitol Lounge.

While plenty of good times were had inside, the real action was outside, in the unusual frigid 15 degree weather. No bad weather would hold this motley crew back!

Many thanks to Jim Boswell for these great photographs! And a big round of applause to all the runners who faced temperatures in the teens and wild chills below zero, all to support the Children’s Tumor Foundation. This year’s run in DC raised an astounding $335,000!
