Cancer Fundraisers This Weekend

This weekend we have a couple of cancer fundraisers going on in Edmonton. One is The Underwear Affair and the other is the Father's Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer. Here is some info regarding the two.

The Underwear Affair is a fun 10K run or 5K walk that benefits often underfunded, taboo cancers like prostate, colorectal, testicular and cervical. It’s time to do something bold and help support the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s effort to find cures and better treatments for these cancers.

The Underwear Affair is one of those rare events that combine a really great cause and a really good time. It’s for people of all ages, all athletic abilities, and all fashion statements. Of course, participating in your underwear is encouraged, but not required. From crazy costumes to great company, on June 20, 2009, join the masses as they journey through the streets of Edmonton in support of treating cancers below the waist.
