Bangor University Students RAG (Raising and Giving) are organising a ‘Runderpants’ mile, a fun run in their underwear, or over their clothes, to raise money for The Neuro Foundation, who support people who have Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumours to develop anywhere in the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and nerves.
The charity run, which will take place on 18th April, is planned to begin at Porth Penrhyn, down Beach Road and ending at Bangor pier.
The fun run is also aimed at promoting ‘body positivity’ to show that anyone and everyone can cover the distance regardless of the time it takes and that anyone can look great in underwear.
Registration for the event costs the students £5 and this gets them a free pair of underpants courtesy of ‘Oddballs‘ the charity raising money and promoting awareness of testicular cancer.
Each runner also has their own fundraising page to raise even more money for charity.
Bangor RAG members spend the year raising money for charity by any means possible and is a great project for those students who wish to volunteer on a one-off basis or all year round.
