FUNderwear Run added to LaughFest!

Have you heard?  LaughFest has added a FUNderwear 5K Run, presented by Universal Forest Products!

Join us on Sunday, March 9 sans your Sunday best as we invite you to wear your finest (and funniest!) underwear over your running clothes in support of Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids!  Forget that black tie because there is a NEW dress code in town – underwear!

We want you to help us bring laughter and awareness of emotional health to the streets of Grand Rapids!  Hey, when else can you run around in your underwear and NOT have it end with a ride in the back of a fancy car with flashing lights?

Click here to register for the FUNderwear Run!

Participants of the FUNderwear Run are also encouraged to do some additional fundraising at  Just click “Become a Fundraiser” at the top of the page.  From there, runners can send their unique website link to their friends and family who can support their drafty 3.1 mile trek through the city.

These additional fundraising efforts through will support Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids, a free emotional health support community where children, adults, families, and friends find their smile and laughter even in the midst of a cancer or grief journey.

We hope to see you running around Grand Rapids in your underwear on Sunday, March 9!
