About 50 students ran around campus in their underwear to support those with epilepsy.
Shivering in huddled groups as the sun set on the Northrop Plaza on Friday, more than 50 half-naked University of Minnesota students prepared to run a mile and a half around campus for charity.
Many of the students on the plaza were attending their first Undie Run, an increasingly popular philanthropy event nationwide, to raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota.
Five College of Science and Engineering students organized the event as part of a class project. Runners donated their clothes to the epilepsy foundation, which will sell them and keep the proceeds.
