Macomb residents will be freezin' for a reason on February 27th, a very good reason in fact; raising money for the McDonough County YMCA with the Nearly Naked Mile. The key word is "nearly" as participants of this untimed one-mile charity run/ walk are encouraged to bare as much as their comfortable with while still covering "anything you would not want your grandmother to see." This fun race will be held February 27th, but coordinators Nick Knowles from the WIU Student Rec and Cody Duffy with the YMCA visited Regional Media of Macomb's morning shows recently to get the word out early.
Pre-registration is $10 and includes a shirt. Registration will also be accepted the day of. To learn more, contact the WIU Campus Rec at 309-298-1228.
