Cupid's Undie Run: Our photo of the day

By Elizabeth Flock
DC-ites participate in this year's Cupid's Undie Run.

Some 500 people ran in their skivvies Saturday to raise money for the Children's Tumor Foundation in D.C.'s annual Cupid's Undie Run.

Onlookers of the 1.5-mile sprint, which started at Pour House and went around the Capitol,  witnessed Washingtonians run in Afros, metallic jockey shorts and Valentine heart panties.

Balance Gym, which had about 15 people participate, raised $3,600, the most money of any group. Owner Graham King said: "It's for a good cause, and we have fun. At a gym, if there's any chance we have to get naked, we say, why not?"

The event raised around $50,000, five times more than last year. Because we all know nothing is more worthy of your money than half-naked Cupids shooting arrows to prevent tumors. Seriously.
