Cupid's Challenges

1. "I take my pants off for charity" Challenge

This year we’re giving you complete creative control over your undie run experience.

"Undie Sunday", the new name for Valentine’s Day, is your chance to get together with friends, dress down to your undies or dress-up, have a giggle, and recreate your own undie run from home. 

Want to run a km in a Wonder Woman outfit? No probs. Prefer to ride your bike with your undies over your cycling shorts? Go for it! Fancy dressing up or down and doing laps around your living room? Who are we to judge? 

WIN one of 3 awesome prizes for #BestDressedCupid, #BestUndieSundayRun, and #TopUndieSundayFundraiser, thanks to our fabulous Cupid’s sponsors.

See you in your undies on Undie Sunday Cupids!

And the WINNER is...

#BestDressedCupid: a $500 Camilla gift voucher, so you will be the Best Dressed Cupid for 2021!
