Seasonal Volunteer Opportunities
Planning committee and event day volunteer sign-ups open in the fall. Opportunities are available in all cities where Cupid’s Undie Run events take place. You can sign up to volunteer via our sign-up form.
If there’s no Cupid’s Undie Run in your city, don’t worry! You can still support Cupid’s through Project: Cupid, our DIY fundraising platform. Just like with Cupid’s Undie Run, 100% of net proceeds go towards neurofibromatosis research. You can use Project: Cupid to donate your birthday, host a fundraising event, or create a page in honor of someone fighting NF.
Bring Cupid’s Undie Run To Your City
Just can’t accept the fact that’s there’s no Cupid’s Undie Run in your city? We feel you! We’re always looking for people who are super-passionate about our cause. If that’s you… we want to hear from you! Apply here to bring Cupid’s to your city, town or university.
There are many other neurofibromatosis organizations out there, but we are the only one that specifically and whole-heartedly focuses on funding research. And it’s working. Since our beginning, we’ve seen an increase in clinical trials and those who participate in the trials are seeing real results. While we’re doing great work, Cupid’s is also a great place to work. With a team that’s caring, passionate about our cause and all those who are a part of it, we provide a supportive, fun and creative environment. This is illustrated in the values we live by: to always lead with love, to never stop innovating, and to believe that attitude is everything.
