It feels amazing to be naked in the streets, amazing. It's the only time I can do it and not get arrested," said Chad Orr-Compton.
Hundreds of people lined the street in downtown Boise Saturday, only in their skivvies, and it was all for a great cause.
"We're raising awareness, and its for a charity for neurofibromatosis which is NF, which is a genetic disorder," said Amy Dunham.
While the fundraiser raises funds for something very serious, it's done in a fun way. Some says that's the best way to spread the word.
"When you talk about cancer, tumors, or whatever the case may be especially when it affects children, the best way to raise awareness is to have fun with it," said Devlin Walker.
While some are experienced runners, "I've done it all three years.. I've enjoyed it all three years," said Walker, others were rookies. "This is my first year. I'm actually really excited. I signed up like 5 days before the run and raised like $572."
Everyone had their own strategy of running the short loop around town.
"I was kinda hard charging at the beginning, but I'm not the most cardiovascular fit guy. I mean I've got a little belly going," said Walker.
All in all, it was about getting the word out about NF.
"My best friend Megan she has this disorder so I've seen her live through this," said Dunham.
"Next year this is going on just get out here and do it," said Orr-Compton.
