Cupid’s Undie Run

Have you ever wanted to run around DC in your underwear? Now you can, while supporting a great cause. Cupid’s Undie Run is an annual run hosted by Cupid’s Charity to support people with neurofibromatosis. The “run” is about a mile long and you’re more than welcome to walk or jog. Want to participate without the skin exposure? No problem! Many people wear onesies or other warm weather gear. Registration is $40, and supports a great cause.

When: Saturday Feb 10 from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.

In this grand finale, hosts Sydney Hsu and Sara Winick say their goodbyes and give updated lists of their current favorite shows. Listen along and compare the new lists to those from the very first episode! 

To all the loyal listeners, it has been a great run, but all good things must come to an end. However, just like some of your favorite TV shows, a second season is never truly out of the question.
