On May 11, half-naked Huskies stripped philanthropy down to its bare essentials, donating the clothes off their backs before racing through campus in nothing but their underwear. As part of the fourth-annual UW AXE Undie Run, more than 300 students donated 560 pounds of clothing to the Big Brothers Big Sisters program of Puget Sound, as well as $5,000 to Solid Ground, a Seattle-based charity for the homeless.

“It’s a great way to have fun,” says participant and UW junior Madelyne Larsen. “And for a good cause.”
