Running nearly naked for a cause in Iowa City


The weather made it less than ideal to take a walk, much less a run, outside Saturday but that didn't stop some dedicated people from doing it almost naked .

It was part of the 5th annual Nearly Naked Mile run at the University of Iowa.

About 350 runners took part.

The cost of the race is at least one article of clothing.

The run is really a clothing drive that helps area families through United Action for Youth.

The event collected just more than 1,000 pieces of clothing.

The biggest donation by a single person was 200 articles of clothing.
