The Canadian Cancer Society is proud to partner with Stanfield’s Limited in the fight for life and to raise awareness about below-the-waist men’s cancers. Based in Nova Scotia, Stanfield’s is an apparel company specializing in men’s underwear, winter underwear, socks, sportswear, fire-resistant garments and women’s underwear.
In its partnership with the Society, Stanfield’s launched an interactive social media campaign featuring the Stanfield’s Gitchhiker, Mark, a survivor of testicular cancer. Mark thumbed his way from Vancouver to the Stanfield’s factory in Truro, Nova Scotia – wearing nothing but his underwear.
I want everyone to win their battles like we did. That’s why I’ve left a gift in my will to the Canadian Cancer Society.
