Undies Run bares all at the Strikers

18 January 2019

Jake Weatherald and Megan Schutt support Cancer Council SA's Undies Run

The first Undies Run at the Strikers will take place on Monday at Adelaide Oval as part of a new partnership with Cancer Council SA.

The event, which will take place before the Strikers face the Hobart Hurricanes in a KFC BBL|07 Final rematch, aims to raise awareness for one of Australia’s biggest killers – bowel cancer.

A number of fundraisers will run two laps of the venue before the opening ball at 5:50pm, and fans can cheer them on as they complete their cheeky challenge.

Strikers stars Jake Weatherald and Megan Schutt threw their support behind the event.

“I think it’s great that the Strikers can get behind such a great cause in one of the best grounds in the world and its fans, and I’m sure some of the boys would be keen to get their kit off if they didn’t have to prepare for the game,” Weatherald said.

Schutt is also a keen supporter of the event, noting how comfortable the Undies Run uniforms are and encouraged people to donate.

With 90 per cent of bowel cancers treated effectively if caught early, through raising awareness we can team up with Cancer Council SA to knock bowel cancer for six.
