MSU students donate shirt off their back to benefit MRCI Thrift Shop

Take it off. Give it up. Run a mile

Universities across the nation, including Minnesota State University, took part in the Nearly Naked Run Thursday. Participants arrived fully clothed, but then stripped down to their underwear before running a mile around the MSU campus.

The clothing shed by the more than 150 participants was donated to the MRCI Thrift Shop. Bragging rights and t-shirts donated by B. Stark and Co. were awarded to the first ten participants to cross the finish line, who promptly put them on to stay warm in the chilly temperatures and light rain.
