Booty Hunt new for Vancouver's 2013 Underwear Affair

Want to raise funds for a good cause, have fun and most importantly, wear your underwear in public? If you aren't up for a 5 or 10k race, then the Underwear Affair's Booty Hunt is for you. No training program required!

The Booty Hunt is new to this year's Underwear Affair, now in its 8th year of raising awareness and funds for research into prostate, colorectal, ovarian, testicular, bladder, cervical, and uterine cancers at the BC Cancer Agency.

The Booty Hunt is an urban scavenger hunt through the streets of Vancouver to uncover the cure to below-the-waist cancers. Booty hunters will work in teams and race to complete a series of challenges then be the first to cross the finish line (in your underwear).

Here's how to get your booty involved:

1) Register for the race

2) Put together a team

3) Charge your smartphone for race day

4) Plan your costume

5) Party

Yes, party. There's a pre-event Expo and a post-event EXPOsed Afterparty so you can raise money for a good cause and have a good time too- in your underwear! Check out the BOOTY HUNT FAQ’s for more info.

The Vancouver Underwear Affair will take place at the Concord Pacific Place on July 6th of this year.  To register, donate or request information, visit or call (604) 734.2873.
