This is the 7th annual fundraising event benefiting UNDERWEARNESS. UNDERWEARNESS is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing new underwear to children in need. We’re helping children…one pair at a time.
Through giving drives, financial donations, and the annual “Drop Your Drawers and Run Wild ” fund-raiser, the all-volunteer organization has collected more than 120,000 pairs of new underwear for charities in the United States, Africa, Mexico, and Haiti. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a package of new children’s underwear for chances to win prizes. Our goal is to collect 5,000 pairs of underwear at the park. That’s a lot of underwear to see piled up!
We do encourage costumes and have attracted many superheroes to this event in the past. If you choose to incorporate underwear into your costume, please keep in mind this is a family-friendly event!
