UMd. students strip for the homeless

A poster for the undie run.
Students at the University of Maryland are dropping down to their drawers Tuesday night to raise money and clothes for College Park's homeless.


Beginning at 8 p.m., students will take the clothes off their backs and donate them to Shepherd's Table, a local homeless shelter. And because they're college students, they'll then run across campus -- in their underwear.

(Rain is forecast for Tuesday night with lows in the mid 50s. Areas of fog also may make visibility poor, or welcome depending on your point of view.)

The undie run is part of a cross-campus competition among students at 10 universities to raise money and clothing for local charities that serve the homeless. The run will start at UMd.'s McKeldin Library at Route 1 and Paint Branch Parkway.

We're not certain this is why our mothers told us to always wear clean underwear.
