For the third year in a row, hundreds of eager folks stripped down to barely-there Valentine’s Day attire and ran the 1.5-mile Cupid’s Undie Run on Saturday.

Donning everything from heart-studded boxers and briefs to towels to hot pink bras, 3,000 runners in six cities—DC, Atlanta, New York, Denver, Seattle, and Cincinnati—raised almost $300,000 this year for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Right now, co-organizer Bobby Gill says they’re still waiting for the final count, but at least $130,000 of all funds raised came from the 800 DC runners.

We rounded up some of the best tweets, photos, and videos from the event. Want to share your photos? Tweet them to us at @washwellbeing.

Watch our interview with the organizers of the race from last year.
