The National Undy RunWalk series is a family-friendly undy-themed RunWalk created by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, with the goal to provide support for patients and families, caregivers, and survivors; to raise awareness of preventive measures; and inspire efforts to fund critical research. The event sparks vital conversations about colorectal cancer – the second leading cause of cancer death in the US – and raises funds and awareness to end this disease within our lifetime.
At the Undy RunWalk, we’re drawing attention to colon cancer in a fun and exciting way. But if undies aren’t your thing, no sweat. Some participants sport their favorite pair of family-friendly undies, while others dress as Santa Claus, a superhero or simply as a runner. Whatever your style, you’re sparking lifesaving conversations and helping make colorectal cancer something people are comfortable talking about.
Most Undy RunWalk events are a 5K, approximately 3.1 miles, and include a one mile fun run, which is untimed. People of all fitness levels attend and all events are timed unless otherwise noted. There are medals for the top three finishers in each age group and all participants receive a pair of our infamous undies to run or walk in.
