It’s time to mark those calendars for a fun and exciting event to enjoy with the whole family while supporting an organization who helps under privileged children or ones that are in need of clothing, like the children who lost all theirs in Hurricane Sandy, with clean new underwear. Underwearness is holding their 5th Annual Drop Your Drawers and Run Wild 5K. The event will take place on Friday, June 27, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at Denver’s City Park. Participants will run or walk around a course enjoying the beauty of Denver’s City Park and Zoo.
After the event you are invited to attend a private party in the City Park Zoo with live entertainment for runners of all ages.
Is a 5K not what you are interested in doing? Well you can still help out a great cause and enjoy the private party at the zoo by paying the Zoo only registration fee. Team registrations are also welcomed.

As a special bonus this year the more packages of unopened children’s underwear you donate the more entries you will have at a chance to win prizes at the event.
