Runners shed clothes for charity in Iowa City

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

A relatively new tradition at the University of Iowa continued Saturday.

Some students ran almost in the buff as part of the 4th annual "Nearly Naked Mile".

Runners are asked to donate an article of clothing which goes to the charity United Action for Youth.

About 500 runners took part in weather that wasn't too bad for a run.

"I'm so excited to be able to help them and hopefully we'll be able to continue this relationship," said Shelly Woller.

The group called "Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow" hope to donate more than 2000 pounds of clothes from the run.
