DENVER - A little snow didn't stop hundreds of runners in their skivvies from lining the streets of Denver for Cupid's Undie Run Saturday afternoon.

The 1.5-mile run took freezing cold runners to the Denver Art Museum and around Civic Center Park.

In its second year in Denver, the run raises money for the Children's Tumor Foundation and hopes to increase neurofibromatosis awareness.

Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow in the nervous system.

In 2010, Chad Leathers and three friends organized the event to help Chad's brother fight against the disorder.

Cupid's Undie Run has now grown to 17 cities across the US and in Sydney, Australia.

This year the organization raised $1 million for the Children's Tumor Foundation and more than $60,000 of it came from Denver.
