Canadian man hitchhiking across country in underwear for a good cause

CNN - As temperatures drop, most of us are bundling up to keep warm. But one Canadian has shed his layers for a special cause. Mark McIntyre is hitchhiking across the country - in his underwear.

Some sights on a chilly Vancouver morning defy description. McIntyre, from King City, Ontario - north of Toronto is here on a mission.

"Well, I'm hitchhiking coast to coast in my underwear to raise some money and awareness for below the waist cancers," McIntyre said.

That takes a lot of - well - you know - and dedication

However, McIntyre is passionate about his cause.

He survived testicular cancer, the most common form of cancer for young men. It strikes about 1,000 Canadians a year.
