Inspired by the motto ‘Take it Off For the Less Well Off!,’ FAU-Jupiter students gathered in the Housing Courtyard on a brisk January evening to compete in the 6th Annual Great Underwear Dash. Students met prior to the race to donate clothing items that would be given to charity. At the strike of eight o’clock, the 20 participants lined up, ready to dash, and with the blow of a whistle, threw off their final top or bottom and ran to the Pool House.
This year, it was a true ‘underwear dash,’ and onlookers were amazed—and slightly puzzled—to see minimally clothed students running through the heart of the MacArthur Campus.
All-in-all, SAVI received about 100 articles of clothing, which were provided to the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County. It was a great time, and this event will be held by SAVI-Jupiter for years to come!
