Don’t be surprised if you’re out-and-about on the seawall along Vancouver’s False Creek on Sunday, July 6 and you see hundreds of people running by in their underwear. They are part of the 2013 Underwear Affair. Runners will be stripping down to their underwear and raising funds and awareness for cancers below the belt for the BC Cancer Foundation.
Participants of the 10km run have pledged to raise a minimum of $300 for the charity race. Funds raised will go to help with research of prostate, ovarian and colon cancers. This is a race where everyone wins!
As a marathon runner, and an advocate for healthy living and sport, I not going to be shy about stripping down to my underwear to support this important cause. I also wouldn’t expect you to be shy about making a donation for my fundraising efforts.
Please make a donation today and help make cancer history! Thank you for your support and generous donation.
