FAQ

Registration

How much does it cost to register?

The Cupid's Undie Run 2021 Challenge is FREE TO REGISTER! With the cancellation of 2020 Cupid's Undie Run, we wanted to thank all our valued supporters with free registration for 2021.

That means even more money available for tax-deductible donations and Cupid's gear. Quality Calvin Klein Cupid’s Undies valued at up to $49.95 are only $20!

Plus if you get your merchandise during registration, postage is FREE TOO!

If you would like to buy additional merchandise, you can do so anytime through our online store.

Can children take part in Cupid’s Undie Run?

Cupid’s Undie Run 2020 does not have a strict age restriction. However, due to the nature of the event it has been planned to appeal to people aged 18 and over. It is up to the individual discretion of parents to determine whether they feel Cupid’s is a suitable event for a child to participate in or view and children must have their parents permission to fundraise.

Do you have to run in just your underwear?

No! At Cupid’s our message is CELEBRATE DIFFERENCE and whilst we promote the concept that stripped-down, we are all the same...we understand that brave comes in different shapes and sizes (and confidence levels). We love costumes! The more outrageous the better! Dress-up in a tutu, a superhero outfit or your Calvin Klein undies on Undie Sunday, as long as you have fun and help share the love for those living with NF, we are happy!

Will the event merchandise be posted to me?

Yes! Provided you order before the postage cut off date, Wednesday 3 Feb 2021, we will aim to get them to you for Undie Sunday, 14 February. If you order after the cut-off, you can still take part in your undies in lots of other challenges, including "Mum! Where are my undies!". Why not enter our #FancyPants Challenge and decorate your Cupid undies?  There is also a fantastic prize on Undie Sunday for the #BestDressedCupid of a $500 gift voucher to CAMILLA so get creative with your costume, share pics and tag us @cupidsundierunoz #bestdressedcupid

Is there a cutoff date for postage?

The last day to order merchandise and receive it in time for "Undie Sunday" is Wednesday 3 February 2021. But you can still use it throughout the fortnight of fun, including wearing it to our virtual #SundaySession on Sunday 28 February 2021 or decorating them and entering our #FancyPants Challenge!


The Charity

Where does the money go?

The money raised will help individuals and families impacted by NF navigate a pathway from fear to hope with the support of the Children’s Tumour Foundation of Australia.  Funds raised from the Cupid’s Undie Run will go towards sustaining a range of programs and services that address the physical, emotional and psychological impact that NF can have on a person or family.

This includes multi-disciplinary NF clinics, research into effective treatments and social, behavioural and developmental issues, a national phone and online support network, as well as family camps and community days that help reduce feelings of social isolation and anxiety.

About the charityctf.org.au

Are donations tax-deductible?

Absolutely!  The Children’s Tumour Foundation of Australia is a registered charity with deductible gift recipient status, so any donation of $2 or more is fully tax-deductible.

(Please note donations are only tax-deductible when the donation is a true gift only, and not where the funds are given in return for a material benefit or advantage, such as the sale of raffle tickets or merchandise. That is considered a purchase and not tax-deductible.)

Does the Children’s Tumour Foundation only support children living with Neurofibromatosis?

The Children’s Tumour Foundation of Australia is the only charity that supports both children and adults with Neurofibromatosis.

What is Neurofibromatosis (NF)?

NF is a genetic disorder that causes tumours to grow on any nerve throughout the body, including the brain and spine. There are three types of Neurofibromatosis; NF1, NF2 and schwannomatosis. Each case of NF is unique to the individual and there is no way to predict how it will manifest. 

In NF, tumours can develop just underneath the skin’s surface and cause visible external growths, or they can grow deep within the body and affect major organs and bones. NF can lead to a range of complications including deafness, blindness, paralysis, physical deformities, bone abnormalities, learning disabilities and chronic pain. NF occurs in as many as 1 in 2,500 births (approx 2 million worldwide). It is progressive, unpredictable and there is no cure.

Help show support for those living with NF and celebrate difference – stripped-down we are all the same. You can run, walk, crawl, dance, swim, cycle, cartwheel, wheelbarrow-race, relay-race, dog-walk, pram-push...the list is only limited by your imagination.

Do I have to run on Undie Sunday?

Cupid’s Undie Run has always been a fun run that isn’t about running or winning...or even undies. It is about fundraising for a cure. You can run, walk, crawl, dance, swim, cycle, cartwheel, wheelbarrow-race, dog-walk, pram-push...the list is only limited by your imagination. It's about raising awareness and funds to provide support services to those living with NF and fund Australian research into new treatments. 

If you are competitive at heart, we suggest you put some of that competitiveness to see if you have what it takes to become a top fundraiser!

How do I join in the virtual Sunday Session?

We will email all registered supporters a link to our virtual Sunday Session so you can join in the fun from the comfort of your own lounge!  Make sure you follow us @cupidsundierunoz to keep up with all the cheeky fun from all over Australia, from 'Undie Sunday' on Sunday 14 February through to our virtual 'Sunday Session' on 28 February 2021.

Can I volunteer to help on Cupid's Undie Run?

Yes! We would love your help. Even if thousands of us can't be physically together in the one "brief" run for 2021, we will be back in 2022 and would love to have more Cupid's Undie Runs all around Australia to share the love for those living with NF!
