Once you arrive at the Elixir, go to the back of the building where you will find a fenced off area and main entrance to venue. Cupid’s is a party plus a one mile run and or walk at your own pace along with more party. Wearing your undie is not a requirement. If your brave to wear your undie then go for it and have a great time. The run will start at Elixir and go around Lake Eola Park and back to Elixir. Law Enforcement is on hand to direct traffic. There are no prizes for those who come in first place. Just remember this is a fun run and walk event.

This fundraising event is trying to raise $88,00 towards to fight neurofibromatosis. So get your office team together or just bring yourself and get down to this super fun event. What is Neurofibromatosis or NF? It s a group of three conditions in which tumors grow in the nervous system. The three types are neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2), and schwannomatosis. In NF1 symptoms include light brown spots on the skin, freckles in the armpit and groin, small bumps within nerves, and scoliosis. In NF2 there may be hearing loss, cataracts at a young age, balance problems, flesh colored skin flaps, and muscle wasting. The tumors are generally non cancerous. This information was found on Wikipedia. Many people come out to this worthy cause to help fight NF. There is still time to sign up early. However, walk up registration is available too.
