If you noticed a few more kilted men around your town last month, it could have been part of a novel fund-raising program called Kilted to Kick Cancer. The organization’s purpose is to raise awareness regarding male specific cancers and spread the message of health, knowledge and support. September, being Kilted to Kick Cancerprostate cancer awareness month, brought out Co-founder Justin Schorr and volunteers who pledged to wear kilts for the whole month of September. 

Why kilts, you ask?  Because, to quote their website, it begs a question. "When a man walks into a room wearing a kilt, everyone has the same question…what’s he got on under there?  A kilt demands attention anywhere it goes and we use that attention to start an awkward conversation with men of a certain age.”

This year, the organization donated $20,000 to UCSF to fuel important research.
