Philadelphia Undy 5000
3rd Annual Philadelphia Undy Makes Big Strides Against Colon Cancer
On September 11th, nearly 600 adults and children participated in the third annual Philadelphia Undy 5000 to help bring greater awareness to colon cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States.
Philly residents helped the CCA raise more than $100,000, which will help support and build the CCA’s national and local patient support and innovative public awareness programs. In addition, a percentage of the funds raised will benefit local colon cancer screening efforts.
