It was a perfect summer afternoon in Vancouver as 600 runners dressed down to their underwear and laced up running shoes to participate in the 2011 Underwear Affair 10km run on Saturday, July 9.
Thank you to everyone who donated to my Underwear Affair run. Your contributions will go a long way to help the BC Cancer Foundation fight cancers including prostate, colorectal, ovarian, testicular, bladder, cervical, and uterine. Although I did not reach my fundraising goal of $1,000, I was still able to raise $959! Between the 10km run and the 5km walk, 1,076 people raised an amazing $630,000!
In the 2011 Underwear Affair, I finished 18th overall and 15th in the Male division with a time of 44m 59s, just one second short of tying my personal best timed 10km race, which was at the 2011 Vancouver Sun Run.
