FUNderwear Run
Sunday, March 11 @ 12:30pm
This unique race invites participants to wear their finest (and funniest!) underwear over their running clothes in support of Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids! So forget black tie, there is a new dress code in town for fundraising events-underwear! Help us bring laughter and awareness of emotional health to the streets of Grand Rapids. Hey, when else can you run (or walk!) around in your underwear and not have it end with a ride in the back seat of a fancy car with flashing lights?
