The Nearly Naked Run is a a charity event designed to let you “Undress, De-Stress and Do Good.” Students who want to participate can bring clothes to donate to charity, then run a mile-long fun-run around campus.
We’ve been hosting this event at several schools across the country– including University of Georgia, University of Alabama, and Vanderbilt – which have brought out hundreds of students donating several pounds of clothing.
Now we’re bringing the Nearly Naked Run back for it’s third year, and donating clothes to Big Brothers / Big Sisters. With finals right around the corner, why not blow off some steam while supporting a great cause?

Run through an example scenario of your day
Sometimes a schedule may make sense visually on your calendar, but can be physically exhausting when actually fulfilled. Take a day or two to run through your day on that current schedule. Did things pop up that you forgot to schedule? Did you have time for homework, sleep, and mental breaks? Keep in mind that you will have to manage that schedule for several weeks – sometimes up to five days a week, which can lead to burning out.
