The Undy Run/Walk is a special way to honor a loved one living with colon cancer and to remember those we’ve lost. There’s a special place in our hearts for those supporting the Colon Cancer Alliance in memory of a loved one who passed away from colon cancer. To honor those who have lost their lives to this disease, new, in 2015, we celebrate their life during the Opening Ceremony of each Undy Run/Walk and throughout the event with keepsake memorial flags available onsite at the Colon Cancer Alliance tent.

Who do you wear undies for? This is your chance to let your voice be heard and to support your loved one in a meaningful way. Your involvement directly impacts those we serve. Thank you for joining us in the fight.

I was excited to see Ed run his first 5K. We had 10 people there supporting Ed, including family and friends from four states. I wasn’t able to see Ed cross the finish line because I was a walker and crossed after him, but I was so proud of what he had accomplished and happy knowing that he could have been in a much worse place during the Undy. Being cancer free that day was the best thing.
