On Saturday, July 7, False Creek seawall was stormed by 1,035 people who stripped down to their underwear, raising an incredible $633,000 and bringing more awareness to cancers below the waist.
Proceeds from the annual Underwear Affair 10km run and 5km walk benefit the BC Cancer Foundation, supporting research and care at the BC Cancer Agency. British Columbia has the best survival rates of any other province in Canada and the BC Cancer Agency has become the model for cancer care and control around the world.
Finishing first place was Twilight movie series star, Charlie Bewley, who finished the 10km race in just over 37 minutes.
Here are my results:
- Time: 45:32
- Finish Male: 24 / 249
- Finish Overall: 27 / 622
