Nearly Naked Mile: Freezin' for a Reason

Nearly Naked Mile Logo

Campus Recreation is sponsoring the third annual Nearly Naked Mile, "Freezin' for a Reason," an untimed one-mile charity run/walk, on Western's Macomb campus. Proceeds benefit the McDonough County YMCA for children's scholarships.

All members of the community are welcome. Participants can drop their clothes at the start of the event and pick them up at the finish line. We encourage your enthusiasm in this event, but help us make this fun for everyone by remaining NEARLY naked. You do not have to shed your clothes, but if you do, please cover anything you would not want your grandmother to see!
