Volunteer Event Director: Boston, Indianapolis, Phoenix, NYC, Dallas

Cupid’s Undie Run (CUR) was founded in 2010 as an effort to bring awareness to a rare genetic disorder known as neurofibromatosis (NF). NF causes tumor growth on the nervous system, and can lead to blindness, deafness, learning disabilities and severe chronic pain. Cupid’s Undie Run is a big party with a “brief” run squeezed in the middle. We like to create an environment where anyone facing NF can make light of a serious situation, while feeling empowered that they are also driving promising research. With over $21 million raised since 2010, we are getting closer to finding a cure to end NF.

we are getting closer to finding a cure to end NF.  

CUR is currently located in 38 cities, all run by volunteer Event Directors (formerly known as Race Directors). We have a strong community of 50+ Directors that support one another and act as on the ground ambassadors, best of the best party planners, NF community connectors, and more! This position is seasonal, beginning in September and wrapping up at the end of February 2022. High points in the season are September, December, and Jan/Feb. Our volunteers are the glue that holds this ship together and we could not be more grateful for your interest in coming on board!

Alyssa Greenbaum

ALYSSA GREENBAUM

A native of New York eager to leave the corporate world, Alyssa, Cupid’s Client Service Manager, packed her car up one morning and ventured out west to the beautiful state of Colorado.  Home of friendly people, outdoor lifestyles and some of the best craft beers around, Alyssa knew she had to be a part of something awesome in Denver. Just her luck, Cupid’s Undie Run had expanded to the Mile High City a year earlier! Grateful for her years of customer service experience, Alyssa was offered a spot at Cupid’s. Got an undie question?  Alyssa has your answer!

AMY BOULAS

After a short stint in corporate America, Amy translated her childhood passion for selling painted rocks into a career in nonprofit fundraising. A career advancement in 2001 saw Amy give up lakeside living in Michigan to embrace the mountain lifestyle of Colorado. She has worked at some incredible organizations during her 20-year nonprofit career but Cupid’s is by far her favorite! When she’s not partying in her underwear, Amy enjoys spending time with her two adorable kids, cooking, reading, doing yoga, making jewelry, and maybe one day soon, painting rocks again.

Cassidy Brewer

CASSIDY BREWER

Cassidy just recently moved back to the Mile High City after having ventured out west to the small beach town of Santa Barbara, California. While the ocean was her world, the mountains were calling and so was her new position as the National Development Manager on the Cupid’s National Team! Cassidy has extensive Marketing and Event Management experience and is excited to reunite with her non-profit roots. Cassidy has a rare zest for life and is passionate about giving back to something greater than herself! As a yogi and former pro-dancer, you can probably find Cassidy having a “pants-off dance-off” to ultimately end NF!

Jamie Balhon

JAMIE BALHON

Jamie is Cupid’s Chief Development Officer. With Midwestern values and South Florida flair, Jamie hails from Indianapolis and comes to Cupid’s from Miami, Florida where she learned there’s no modesty in raising money or hanging out “sans pants”. With tons of fundraising experience and a sense of humor, Jamie is ready to conquer the Undie World and help end NF. In her spare time, you can find her hanging out with her husband, kids and dog, exploring Denver, and most likely eating sushi.

JENNA RAIMIST

Jenna comes to Cupid’s after spending her whole life in sunny California, but after a few visits with friends to beautiful Colorado she knew something about it felt right! With loads of both small and large-scale event production and volunteer management experience, she can’t wait to jump right into a pair of undies and join the team as a National Development Manager. Outside of work, you can find Jenna in a yoga class, cooking (and eating… duh,) at a rock show, or Netflix binging with her friends!

Katie Doyle

KATIE DOYLE

Cupid’s Technology Manager, Katie Doyle, hails from upstate New York, where as a child she spent her time on horseback, on a computer, or nose-deep in a book (or, a story of her own). Her tinkering with reading, writing and the Internet evolved into a career in digital media, project management and web design. Katie is deeply grateful for the opportunity to use these skills in the fight against NF. Currently based in Saratoga Springs, NY, in her free time you can still catch Katie writing stories – or, on a yoga mat, playing with her pup Tobie, or painting. All of her subjects happen to be dogs.

Rachel Anderson

RACHEL ANDERSON

Rachel comes to us from the great state of Montana. She’s as crazy about thrillanthropy as she is about the rocky mountains. She headed to Denver to live a city life among the peaks. With a background in operations and project management, she jumped into Team Cupid as our Chief Operations Officer. She loves to plan, plan, plan. When she’s not wrangling all things office undies, you can find her exploring exotic locales with her husband, Justin, or romping around the woods with her border collie Olive.

Sarah Flinn

SARAH FLINN

Sarah, Cupid’s Digital Marketing and Social Media Manager, was raised in Utah but quickly left the Beehive State in search of better breweries, parties, and undies. Luckily, all of those things were waiting for her just across the border in Colorado. Sarah brings years of experience in digital marketing, social media, and nonprofits to Cupids and she is excited to fill the internet with pictures of people stripping down for a good cause. When she isn’t running through the streets in her skivvies or spreading the word about Cupid’s, you won’t find Sarah — she’ll be off the grid on her next adventure with her husband and their dog, Dingo.

Scout's Bio

SCOUT PETERSON

This Nebraska native will happily talk your ear off about how much she adores living in Denver. When she’s not picnicking in Cheesman park or shooting hoops after hours, Scout’s hard at work creating Digital Media and all things Marketing for Cupid’s. With a background in creative writing and a few satirical short stories under her belt, Scout’s writing is sure to make you chuckle. When we’re not laughing at her words, we’re laughing at the fact that her favorite candy is candy corn . . . More importantly, Scout is thrilled at the opportunity to bring comedic relief to such a great cause.
