2011 Vancouver Underwear Affair

Pirates of the Nether Regions

We are the Pirates of the Nether Regions and we are running the Underwear Affair to fight cancers below the waist.


Our goal started at $10,000 just a few short months ago, but continues to skyrocket higher as our team members make their personal goals higher.


Too many of us have been deepy effected by Cancer's below the waist; we've had mothers, brothers, fathers, sisters, grandparents, and countless friends contract these diseases.

I myself have lost my father to prostate cancer, and my mother just won her battle with advanced stage Ovarian cancer.


Cancer changes us all of us, It devastates our lives and hurts the people that we love the most. We have had enough.


Our team is varied, we range in age from 14 to 60+ and yet we are all going to gather together as a team on July 9th and run 10km or walk 5km in Pirate-themed Underwear to raise money a whole lot of money for Cancer Research!

A good majority of us have never run before, but we are not going to let that stop us!


Friends of friends, and strangers alike, join us and run the 10km or walk the 5km in your pirate best

Join Captain Kate, Pirate's Booty, a Mermaid, a Parrot.... and any other creative costumes you can come up with!


Run with us, or Donate today to support the Pirates of the Nether Regions!


With all my heart I thank you for your participation in running and/or donating!

Welcome to our Underwear Affair Team Page!

We’re psyched to be participating in the Underwear Affair as a group because we all want to raise a lot of money to fight cancers like prostate, colon, and ovarian, among others. BC Cancer Foundation’s Underwear Affair®, is a 10K Run / 5K Walk to uncover cures for cancers below the waist. We’ll be the team dressed in costume among thousands of other people gathered on the streets of Vancouver for one great night this summer. It will be the biggest Affair this town has ever seen!

It’s about giving these devastating cancers some exposure and shedding some light on their cures. So please help us in our efforts to raise money for care and research for cancers "down there!" What can you do about it? Don’t be shy - you can either donate to one of us, or you can join us! We’d love to have you as a team member the more the merrier!

Thanks for your support!
