Community service is the focus of this fun run that collects new or lightly-worn clothes for local homeless shelters.
Participants donate articles of clothing and then proceed to run/walk a mile NEARLY naked in appropriate attire for this fun run (undergarments, bathing suits, boxer shorts, t-shirts, shorts, tank tops and camisoles).
The run demonstrates the challenges faced by over 16,000 homeless people across Massachusetts without appropriate clothing as cooler temperatures approach. All donations will support the Amherst Survival Center. View a photo slideshow of last year’s event.
Participating in the run is also a great way to give back to your university since $10 from each registration will be a charitable contribution to UMass Amherst student scholarships.
Don’t miss out! Register by October 9 to receive your FREE Nearly Naked Mile t-shirt. Shirts will be available for pick-up as you cross the finish line!
Start location: Northeast Quad
