Man Hitchhiking in His Underwear to Raise Awareness

Posted: Updated:

As temperatures drop, most of us are bundling up to keep warm.

But this Canadian is shedding his layers, for a special cause.

Mark McIntyre is hitchhiking across Canada in his underwear to raise awareness of Testicular Cancer.

Supporters are visiting his website to donate money to the Canadian Cancer Society, or offering to give him a ride along his route.

McIntyre is passionate about his cause. He survived Testicular Cancer, the most common form of cancer for young men.

He is now cancer free.

The Ontario native says he's not sure how drivers will react when they see him trying to hitch a ride.

If you are interested in helping his cause, you can check out his website to the left of this story.
