Nanaimo’s Brynn Logan took to the streets of Vancouver in her underwear Saturday, all in support of the B.C. Cancer Foundation.

Logan joined more than 1,000 participants in the seventh annual Underwear Affair, contributing close to $17,000 to the $633,000 raised to fight cancers including prostate, colorectal, ovarian, testicular, bladder, cervical, and uterine.

Participants completed the five-kilometre walk or 10-km run clad in outrageous costumes, underwear and athletic attire as spectators along the route cheered them on.

“For me, The Underwear Affair is an opportunity to raise funds for research, and break the taboos that comes along with these cancers,” said Logan, who finished second in fundraising for the event.

“It gives me this incredible feeling of community, supporting a great cause while having a lot of fun.”
