The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) and Meredith's Miracles Colon Cancer Foundation have joined forces to bring you this year's Cincinnati Undy 5000 - an incredible, family-friendly 5K run/walk to bring attention to this disease in a unique and eye-catching way.
All participants receive a pair of boxer shorts and are encouraged to run in their underwear-themed clothing. No, running in your underwear is not required, but you will see some great outfits as we make colon cancer a subject that is ok to talk about.
Though we have fun with this event, we always remember the seriousness of colon cancer. The Undy 5000 is about celebrating those who have valiantly fought and remembering those we have lost. We do this while creating awareness about the importance of screening. By getting people to talk about this disease, we can - and do - save lives.
Join us as we work to knock colon cancer out of the top three cancer killers. As a former participant in the Meredith's Miracles 5K, we are offering a special discount. Register by Friday, September 6 using code MIRACLES for $5 off registration. Remember to ask friends and family to join you.
We hope to see you there!
