As any young man growing up in Nova Scotia, I grew up wearing my share of underwear made a dozen or so miles away at the Stanfield’s factory in Truro. However, I never attempted to hitchhike anywhere in my tighty whities, not even on a double-dog dare.
But, that’s exactly what testicular cancer survivor Mark McIntyre will be doing. Starting on November 14, he’ll be attempting to make his way from Vancouver to Truro in 21 days by hitching rides and completing challenges and dares. If he’s successful, Stanfield’s will give $20,000 to the Canadian Cancer Society for below-the-waist cancer research.
You can follow McIntyre’s adventure at Gitchhiker.com, and help him out by voting on gifts (so far, fans have voted to provide him with boots and a toque) and saved kilometers in the Gitchmobile.
