Bangor ‘Runderpants’ is back for a second year and the organisers promise it’s going to be even bigger and better this year.
The event is being orgnaised by Bangor University Students RAG (Raising and Giving) and involves a one mile 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 takes place on 20th March, starts at Porth Penrhyn, down Beach Road and ending at Bangor Pier.
After the charity run the The Tap And Spile will be hosting a barbecue and there will be an event later at Academi.
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.
