Underwear Affair to benefit Canadian Cancer Society

The University of Lethbridge's Organization of Residence Students (ORS) will be stripping down to their skivvies and running around campus for charity this weekend.

ORS is hosting its second annual Underwear Affair Run/Walk, a two kilometre run/walk around campus on Saturday, Mar. 26 at Noon.

"The ORS has devoted a lot of time into developing philanthropy projects in the community and the Underwear Affair is our continuation of the groundwork laid by our dedicated team," says Kyle Hammond, ORS President.

Last year the event attracted over 70 participants and a total of $6,700 was raised and donated to World Vision. There is a $5 fee to participate in the event, with all money raised this year to be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

"Many people's lives have been affected by family or friends that have fought cancer and we feel that it is important to help raise awareness and funds for this issue to help those people in need," says Hammond.

The run will start in the University of Lethbridge Bus Loop, in front of the Students' Union Building. Participants will traverse the two-kilometre specified route and end at Patterson Centre where they will enjoy a barbecue and refreshments for their efforts.
