Come run a 5K in your underwear to fight colon cancer with Hemosure® at the Colon Cancer Alliance’s 2014 St. Louis Undy 5000 5K Run/Walk! The Undy 5000 is a 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run aimed at motivating people to get screened for the disease, which is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in the United States. People don’t know about it because they don’t talk about it. The Undy 5000 promotes discussion by encouraging people to run in their underwear! This is a family-friendly event, and running in underwear is not mandatory.
The Undy 5000 5K is a run/walk to raise awareness about colon cancer. Participants in the Undy 5000 events are encouraged to draw attention to their bottoms—and colon cancer—byparticipating in their underwear.
