Runner’s World Cover Winner – Bobby Gill

We want to be one the first to congratulate Bobby Gill as the Runner’s World Cover Search Winner for 2015. He will be seen gracing the cover of Runner’s World in little more than Asics Arm Sleeves, Inov-8 X-Talon 190’s, red underwear, and his pride.

Bobby was chosen as a finalist from over 1600 entrants.

Bobby co founded Cupids Undie Run . Brendan grew up with the Leathers family and had seen the damage NF had on his childhood friend Drew Leathers. When Brendan told Bobby the idea for Cupids Undie Run Bobby was all in and together they forged a fundraising method to try and find a cure for NF.

 

Bobby co founded The Cupid’s Undie Run with then roommate Brendan Hanrahan. Brendan grew up with the Leathers family and had seen the damage NF had on his childhood friend, Drew Leathers. When Brendan told Bobby the idea for Cupid’s, Bobby was all in, and together they forged a fundraising method to try and find a cure for NF. Sadly, we lost Drew this summer to the disease.

To date, Cupid’s has raised almost 8 million dollars for NF Research. They raised $3.5 million for last year’s events and want to bump that to $5 million in 2016. The event will take place in 36 US cities this coming February and an additional 3 in Australia.
