The Underwear Affair 

Magnifying glass

Although we are more able to discuss illness than the days when cancer was ‘the “c” word’, "below the belt" cancers are still considered embarassing for some. On Sept. 20, Tyrone Smith (right) led Kim Archer (left) and Andrea Spingle (centre) in a Concordia effort to raise money for research and awareness at the Underwear Affair. Runners ran in their skivvies to attract attention to the issue. Jill Smith also contributed to the team's $1 300 in pledges, though a knee injury sidetracked her from the 10km run. Smith said the team beat their $1 000 goal. The team's t-shirts were provided by Recreation and Athletics.
