Gala supports underwear run

Thousands are participating in the B.C. Cancer Foundation’s Underwear Affair walk/run in Vancouver July 7

It’s not everyday people get to run around the city in their underwear.

But thousands are participating in the B.C. Cancer Foundation’s Underwear Affair walk/run in Vancouver July 7 to expose prostate, testicular and ovarian cancer.

Joining other runners in their underwear is Nanaimo’s Brynn Logan. She has been fundraising for the past year, hoping to raise $10,000 for the foundation.

“I don’t know how to cure cancer, but I do know how to raise awareness,” said Logan, “I was personally touched by cancer in my 20s when I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I have lost many family members and friends to cancer and I just want to try to help in some way.”

She has already  raised more than $5,500 through events in Parksville and Qualicum, and Nanaimo residents have the opportunity to help by attending a fundraiser at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre on June 29.

This event features a comedian, singers and dancers as well as a silent auction.

Tickets are $20 and available at Diners Rendezvous on Wallace Street or by calling Logan at 250-753-6699.
