Runners in Broome County to Strip for a Cause

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

Speaking on the local public affairs program, Southern Tier Close Up, November 16, Energy Leadership Program coordinator for Cornell Cooperative Extension, Adam Flint and Binghamton University Student Volunteer Center president, Theresa Ehrich discuss plans for an upcoming, creative event on the B.U. campus that will benefit the Urban Star program of the Broome County Urban League and Cooperative Extension programs in Broome County.

The first annual Strip for a Cause 5k Fun Run will be held starting at the Old University Union November 23 at 11 a.m.

Runners, dressed in layers upon layers of clothing to be donated, will be navigating the course, stripping off layers as they go to be collected for the Urban League’s Vintage Star Boutique.  Flint stresses, however, no nudity is allowed.  Participants  may even want to stuff more items that no longer fit them under their shirts and coats.

The funds from the entry fees will be used for the local Cooperative Extension community education programs.

In addition to talking about the upcoming run, Flint and Ehrich discuss how the cooperative effort came about, Cooperative Extension programs and the various project undertaken in the community by students from the University Volunteer Center.

More information about the Strip for a Cause run can be found on facebook at

Southern Tier Close Up can be heard Saturdays at 12:10 p.m. on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
