Running Bare Because They Care

What lengths would you go to to raise awareness for the homeless? Would you get *nearly* naked?

Stripping down has become an annual tradition for University of Iowa students and community members in the charitable walk/run called the Nearly Naked Mile, but at least the PG event is for a good cause! Instead of paying an entrance fee, participants take off their extra clothing before the race to be donated to The Salvation Army.

The third annual Nearly Naked Mile will be held this Saturday with a goal of raising more than 500 pounds of clothing.

It will be a chilly jog, but the goose bumps are worth it! To register or check out pictures of last year’s costumed (yes, you can wear costumes) participants, click here.
