Wow! 2016 was an incredible year for our signature Run/Walk series. From adding in some incredible new events - welcome, Scope it Out Family! - to seeing all of our favorite cities once again, we had a record-breaking year across the board. Thanks to your support, we were able to raise more than $2.2 million dollars toward our mission to knock out colon cancer. Funds raised through the Undy Run/Walk and Scope It Out 5k support both local and national colon cancer prevention, research and patient support programs. In fact, $0.86 of every dollar received goes directly to helping patients and their families in need!

"This has been an amazing year, and it wouldn't have been possible without each and every volunteer, sponsor, survivor, patient and - most of all - the families and friends of those we remember. If you've been to one of our races, you know there is no better feeling than being surrounded by those who are passionate about making sure we stop at nothing to end this terrible disease. Every step you take and dollar raised makes a difference in the lives of the 1.5 million patients, families and survivors the Colon Cancer Alliance supports."

- Michael Sapienza, Colon Cancer Alliance CEO.

Not the everyday 5K, the Undy Run/Walk and Scope It Out 5K puts a fun and clever twist on an uncomfortable topic, sparking much needed conversation about this serious disease. Instead of typical running gear, attendees are encouraged to sport family-friendly, eyebrow-raising attire, such as brightly colored undies, creative team-branded t-shirts, frilly tutus, or superhero costumes. Included with race registration is a pair of signature boxers; however, participants can get creative with their style choice and team spirit.

Get Ready, 2017!
