Chicago | Britches be crazy

I will be stripping to my skivvies and running around in the frigid temps this February, all in an effort to raise funds so kids like Jack Burke can grow up happy and healthy. Would you give me money for taking off my clothes? What... ? No, I mean would you make a donation to my fundraising page? Here: *|http://hopecur.com/907indipino|* Why? Because I'm running through the streets this February in Cupid's Undie Run to raise funds for the Children's Tumor Foundation (CTF.org). That's right, a mile run in the freezing cold, in nothing but my underwear. No I didn't lose a bet, I just wanted to do something bold and help out this amazing charity. Last year we raised over $1.3 Million for this very much needed research and I need your help this year to do more. 100% of donations go to CTF and will families battling a horrific disorder called neurofibromatosis (NF). It causes tumors to grow on the nervous system which can lead to deafness, blindness, debilitating pain, learning disabilities, cancer and even more. It sucks, a lot and we need to do something about it. Since there are no current treatments, I'm doing whatever it takes, clearly, to do my part to find a cure. We can #endNF! $5 ... $500! All gifts are important and will go a long way to helping those in need. Oh and they are tax-deductible as well. All joking aside, on behalf of those I'm running for, we are truly grateful for your contribution. My sincerest thanks, and yes I will send pics. - *|Samantha|* 100% of donations to Cupid's Undie Run go directly to The Children's Tumor Foundation. The Children's Tumor Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a 4-Star Charity Navigator rating. CTF prides itself on efficiency, spending 82.4% of its revenue on program expenses and less than 8% on administrative costs. Jack is the kind of kid that immediately becomes your best friend - such a character, a great big brother and just happy as can be.

...but Jack's journey is a tough one. He was diagnosed with NF (neurofibromatosis) at two-years-old and, along with other tumors, he has a plexiform neurofibroma (a complex tumor) just behind his left eye.

And now, just this September, they discovered a new tumor on his brain stem that needs immediate intervention. So, as you are reading this, he will have started 15 months of chemotherapy. An 8-year-old going through chemo!

NO CHILD SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS, so I am running in my undies in the freezing cold because I will do whatever it takes, no matter how ridiculous, to help find a cure for NF!

Your donation, whether it be $5 or $500, will provide critical funding to the Children's Tumor Foundation and allow for clinical trials, treatments and ultimately the cure we desperately need.

I sincerely thank you, Jack thanks you, and the millions of families who will benefit from this effort thank you.
