Melissa Griffin, from the Biology department, and Becca Grisillo, from the College of Arts & Sciences, participated in the Inaugural Philadelphia Cupid’s Undies Run to benefit the Children’s Tumor Foundation on Saturday February 9.

The Children’s Tumor Foundation is the largest non-government non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for research and awareness of Neurofibromatosis. Neurofibromatosis is a debilitating genetic disorder. NF causes tumors to grow all over the nervous system and can cause blindness, deafness, learning disabilities and severe chronic pain. NF has been classified into three distinct types; NF1, NF2 and schwannomatosis. They are caused by different genes, located on different chromosomes. NF1 is the most common neurological disorder caused by a single gene; occurring in one in every 3,000 children born.

Cupid’s Undies Run occurred in 17 cities nationwide this year. The total raised nationally: more than $1,000,000; Philly raised:$61,073; Melissa and Becca's team raised:$4,671. Of that, Becca raised $4211 and was also the #1 female fundraiser and the #1 overall fundraiser in Philly. Great job Melissa and Becca!
